We celebrate Independence Day every fourth of July. July 4, 1776 the Second Continental Congress unanimously adopted the Declaration of Independence, announcing the thirteen colonies' separation from Great Britain.
Today most people will be celebrating as family and friends get together and have barbecues, picnics, and later tonight a beautiful display of fireworks, Whatever you do I pray you will be safe.
I am not by any means trying to be a party pooper, however I want you to think about the people who fought for this country and how it might affect them. I know PTSD is very common and I am sure it affects our beloved soldiers, Can you imagine thinking that you are under fire at the sound of all the fireworks? The fireworks also affect our animals especially dogs as some of them become terrified and on several occasions tend to run away.
I am going to keep this brief today and I hope you enjoy this day of Independence. I just hope you will take some time to pray for those this might affect in a different way. Thank God for the freedom we have!
