4th of July

Let us remember that freedom is not free. RIP Jacob Dennis, who served us in Afghanistan. Please keep the Dennis family in your prayers.

We had a wonderful church service this morning, with about 1700 friends. It was a lot of fun celebrating our country, but more importantly the freedom that Jesus Christ gives us. Let me also say that I am proud to have a pastor who isn't ashamed of standing up for what is right, speaking his mind, and encouraging people to make a difference in our country. I'm amazed God still blesses us so much as undeserving as we are, with all the abortions and homosexuality that still goes on, as well as the debt that our president keeps increasing in order to "get rid of debt."

Gradually and surely our country is adapting socialism. Forcibly taking from people to give to others is not right. But as socialism increases, our pastor made it clear that church attendance decreases. People are relying on other things to meet their needs instead of God, just like people rely on the government for their needs. People need to get OFF their couches on Sunday mornings and get themselves to church. That is what America needs. This is a Christian nation and we need to get back to that. Going to church and/or Sunday School does not make you a Christian, but as Christians, we should obey and honor God, "not neglecting our church meeting" as the Bible says in Hebrews 10. People who call themselves Christians and say they love God yet don't go to church are all talk and don't "walk the walk" in my opinion. This disobedience to God is one that so easily can be changed. It's not hard going 1 day a week for God, especially when most will go to work 5-6 days a week for money. I know many people will read this and still not start going to church, but that is between them and God. Personally, I'm glad I don't have to answer to God one day about why I wouldn't go. I may step on some toes here, but I feel like it needs to be said and God has certain people reading this for a reason. For some reason I get a lot of blog traffic so why not use it for a greater good every once in awhile? Do I feel comfortable saying all this in my personal blog knowing some of the people that read it? No, but I'm to the point where I won't hold back either. I'd much rather post some cute pictures of Madison from today, but for some reason this is what I felt led to post.

Hopefully I'll get some pictures of Madison in her red, white, and blue tonight and have those up sometime tomorrow. For now, here's our little 3 1/2 month old last year on the 4th:
