On this 4th of July morning, I find myself feeling very thankful for my country.
Sure, she has her flaws and failures. Sometimes I get frustrated and disagree strongly with hurtful policies and decisions made by our national leaders and courts.
But, this morning, I am reminded of how fortunate we are to live in this great land of bounty and freedom. I thank God for America and pray His blessing and protection over her.
I thank God for our president, congress, and supreme court -- convicted that I 've spent far more time and energy griping about them, than praying for them.
