Tomorrow is Independence day! So today I have an Independence Day Tablescape for you along with some Independence Day ramblings.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of the day this nation won it’s hard-fought-for freedom and the right to govern themselves.
This nation was founded on the Godly, biblical principles. By Christian men and women who were looking to God the Creator of the Universe as their ultimate King and acknowledged His Son Jesus as King of their lives. Dig a bit into history and you will find this to be true. But hurry – our history books are being rewritten and the true history of this nation will soon be buried and forgotten.
As we think about how our nation was founded and honor the brave men and women who fought for our freedoms in so many ways, let’s not forget the source of true freedom. Jesus Christ. Without Him we can never know what freedom really means. With Him we can have freedom even if our earthly, human rights and freedoms are stripped from us.
Let’s gather our families and friends and celebrate the fact that we still live in a nation that is considered ‘Free’. No matter how many of those freedoms are disappearing we can still come and go as we please, worship our Lord, and we have blessings too many to count.
Creating a tablescape is fast becoming one of my favorite hobbies! Pulling all the pieces together and creating a pretty spot to enjoy a meal is so rewarding. Now I just need a cook to get the meal all prepared while I’m setting the table! 😀
‘We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessings…’
The American detailed angel is a vintage wax cherub. I bought it several years ago when ‘The Blissful’ was still open. I’ve always been so glad I grabbed on while I could. I think it is just darling.
Have a very happy 4th of July weekend!
