…today’s secret…God Bless America.

Have you ever read the Declaration of Independence?

It lists a few things up front that are so obvious that we hold them to be “self-evident”

…things like “all men are created equal” and that God gave each of us the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

It then goes on to list 28 things we were against enough to part ways with England.

Our Declaration of Independence is a phenomenal mission statement. It provides focus and clarity. It separates us from the pack. It is written to persuade. It is written to offend.

We Americans tend to be big on beginnings and possibilities don’t we?

I thank God I was born in America.

I hope your 4th of July was/is reflective!
