Dan, Madeline, Hamish, and I want to wish everyone a fun, safe, and happy 4th of July!

We would also like to challenge you to be thankful to our merciful Creator that we live in a country where we are free to live, work, marry, and worship as we choose. There are so many who cannot say that. With that freedom comes a responsibility to work hard, love much, and help many.

With that in mind, as you enjoy your barbecue and fireworks today, please take just a moment to remember all the men and women who continue to serve in our armed forces to secure that freedom.

Have an awesome day!!

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”  – Galatians 5:13
