Thankful Thursday- Freedom


Lynn is hosting this month, thank you sweetie. This week she has chosen the theme freedom, very timely. I am thankful for many freedoms in my life, including the freedom to share this blog post with you. I am thankful that I am not entangled in sin, God freed me from sin. I am thankful for the freedom of religion, and the freedom of speech. I am able to freely worship my God, and to proclaim His name as loudly as I choose. I am thankful for all the men and women who fight to make sure I am able to keep my freedom, who are willing to give their very life's, so that I may live my life in total freedom. I am thankful that I am free to be me, a saved by grace, overweight, balding 45 year old daughter of the King. I love my Father with all I am, and will freely, and boldly proclaim that from now, until eternity, and then I will still continue to proclaim it throughout heaven!!
