Happy Thanksgiving!

Ronald Reagan: Let's Keep This Thanksgiving Day SacredImage result for happy thanksgiving

I want to wish all the blog readers a Happy Thanksgiving!  We have so much to be thankful for as Americans.  When we head to our families today to celebrate Thanksgiving and partake of the great  east that's presented for us, it reminds us of the goodness of God in our lives.  God's good to us.  In spite of all the wickedness that takes place in our society, God is still good to America.  God was very merciful to us on election day.  I'm very thankful we didn't get what we deserve when it comes to the choice of political leaders that we elected on election day.  I'm thankful for the liberty we still have as Americans.

I was thinking about liberty just a little while ago and one of the great privileges we have as Americans and even those who are Christians is liberty.  When we read Genesis 2, we read where God gave Adam a choice.  He had the liberty to choose to either partake of the fruit of the Garden of Eden on that tree or not to partake of the fruit on the tree.  Adam was given liberty by God to make the choice to either obey God or disobey God.  Sad to say, he chose the latter, but God gave him the liberty to make a choice.  That's amazing because God could've chosen to have created man as a robot.  He could've programmed man to serve Him.  But God didn't desire that.  He wants man to worship God out of his own volition.  God's granted every person liberty to choose whether they want to accept God and follow Him or reject God and follow Satan. 

On this Thanksgiving Day we need to cherish the liberty we have as Americans.  We can lose our liberties if we're not vigilant.  Liberty is a precious commodity.  Happy Thanksgiving!
