Fourth of July.
The day the Declaration of Independence
was adopted by the Continental Congress in 1776.
Today and every day, I want to thank all sons and daughters,
brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers,
grandfathers and grandmothers, great-grandparents,
great-great-grandparents who served
and are still serving in our military.
Today we celebrate your courage and determination.
We are a grateful nation.
Most people see only what’s right there in front of them. They are surprised or fearful of what is coming toward of them. They avoid looking at what happened in the past or in some cases dwell in past events where they were miserable and then project those negative feelings onto their possible future. They focus is on themselves and avoid looking around.
“Give Thanks Every Day”
Give Thanks every morning to the Creator for allowing you to enjoy another beautiful day. If your time is coming to a close, give thanks for the time you had to love and be loved. Cherish the warm sun on your face everyday. Savor all that nature has to offer: feel the wind on your skin, smell the fragrances of different flowers in a meadow, watch the leaves from a tree dance in the wind, listen to the birds sing or water trickling down a stream, taste the sweet juices from freshly picked fruit and enjoy the sunset at the end of another beautiful day.
Give thanks to those who have shown you kindness when your need was strong. Help a stranger in need, no matter how small the deed and expect nothing in return.
Give thanks every evening to the Creator for giving you another spectacular day and know the promise of tomorrow is always there.
