On behalf of Concerned Women for America of Maine, I wish you a happy 4th of July! I love the quote of Dwight D. Eisenhower, “Independence Day: freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.”
So, take time to celebrate our freedom this holiday with family, friends, neighbors, and community. Enjoy the parades, barbeques, and other activities that are uniquely American. And most importantly, praise God for the victories at the Supreme Court this session. Praise Him for the overturn of Roe v Wade, religious expression protections, and other important Constitutional issues.
Please Pray: Heavenly Father, freedom is a precious gift from You. We recognize that just as no government can give us freedom, no government can take it away because Your word in John 8:36 says, “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” We do thank you that we live in the land of the free because of the brave and because You have bestowed Your grace on America for over 200 years. We love You because You first loved us and have made known Yourself to us through Your Word. We praise You for Your many blessings on our country. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
Happy Independence Day!
PS: Quotable quote, “I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom, I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth all the means. This is our day of deliverance.” Written by John Adams, second president of the United States, on July 3, 1776.
