I love Independence Day.  It’s one of my favorite holidays of the year.  With all the crazy we have here, I still love America.

Most years, I read the Declaration of Independence.  This year, I’ll still do that, but I’m adding the United States Constitution to my reading list, the legal document that established our government and enshrines the rights given to us by God, recognized by a group of men over 200 years ago.  I love it’s preamble:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

This year, practice your religious freedom to thank God for the rights and blessings he’s given us.  Do something that makes you feel free, and celebrate what we all have here.

Happy Independence Day.
