Remembrance of those Days – the 4th of July

On the 4th of July, we grill out, visit family, and go swimming. But, we need to remember why we celebrate.

I wrote this poem, Remembrance of those Days, as I was thinking about what God has done for us and what a blessing it is to live in the United States of America. Also, I was reminded what a great sacrifice was given so that we might be free – made by the early Americans and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Remembrance of those Days

What a wonder that they did.
Oh, those men from long ago.

They fought as they were led
By the leaders of our land.

They did not run in fear,
But trusted in God’s mighty hand.

They guarded what they held dear – 
 Truth, and liberty, and freedom.

They willingly gave up their life
So that we might come
And worship freely – no fear of strife.

We take this time to celebrate and remember
Our freedom, our country, our God.
For it is by Him only that we are here
To love, to serve, to glorify His name.

C.S. Lewis Quotes – #3

Earlier, we looked at our first two C.S Lewis quotes:

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.  C.S Lewis Quotes – #1

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one. C.S. Lewis Quotes – #2

Today, we will focus on this one… Reflections: God’s glory is wonderful and it is greater than anything we could imagine. We can glorify God with our actions, but we can not take away from that glory in any way. 

When we sin, we displease God. When we decide that we want to go our own way and worship ourselves or anything other than God, we hurt His heart. But, it does not mean that we make God any less glorious or any less beautiful. 

 God is still God. Like the quote said, there is nothing we can do to make Him ‘less God’ or to lessen His glory.
