Today marks America’s 237th birthday. If you’re an American or live in America, you should be celebrating! I know I will be celebrating with friends and family.
More than just a celebration, though, I want to reflect on how grateful we should be to be living in such a rich nation. True, there are many impoverished living in America, but if we look at the world around us, in many other countries, the poor are even more poor than ours. And if you’re reading this, I’ll bet your not even close to living in poverty. Think about that.
So let’s be thankful and respectful in our celebration. It’s just another day to be a light to those around us and thank God for all of our blessings we don’t deserve.
