One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the restul is eternal life" 
 (Romans 6:22).

"God keep our land, glorious and free" 

Celebrating our nation's birthday day, I am so grateful for our freedom.  However, more importantly, I am so grateful for being set free from sin because of Christ's sacrifice on the cross.

Continuing to give thanks...
