I love the 4th of July. The red, white and blue colors. The flags flying in front of homes and businesses. The history of this great country. The fight for independence.
I once prided myself on my independence. Able to do anything. Don’t need anyone. Me, Myself and I.
Independence. Advancement. Wealth. The American Dream.
It is all for the pursuit of happiness, right?
But, little happiness was found. Especially in my marriage.
My husband and I were asked to share the testimony of our marriage back in June of 2009 (3 years and 2 kids ago!) at our church. We were videotaped in our home and it was shared as the conclusion of a teaching series called “The American Dream”.
I shared this testimony video on my very first post here at FLT. It seemed time to dig it out and share again for those that may not know our story.
“We see everything differently.”
If you’ve got 20 minutes to give to seeing your life differently, I suggest you view the full message and meet our passion-filled Pastor Steve, here.
As we inch closer to the day where our country declared independence, I’m proudly declaring my full and utter dependence on Christ. Real life. Real liberty. Real happiness.
