Honoring Independence Day - TT#3

Updated: Sep 2, 2019


Throwback Thursday #3 - July 2019

This “lighter-side TT" post is offered in Tribute to Independence Day - July 4, 2019.


Recognition of true independence and freedom means knowing the sacrifice and cost of our freedom… it means knowing Who has paid the ransom on our behalf. And, in honoring that freedom, we live from a place of gratitude in light of our true values, sharing from the heart, devoted, being present in our journey, delighting in the daily moments, and continually refining the art of loving others well!  

"Life, Freedom, and each New Day is a Gift from God...”

{Written Friday, June 19, 2009 – Titled: “Beauty in Lyrics”}


I want the sunrise every morning to remind me that...

Life, Freedom, and each New Day is a Gift from God,

And, I should live it as such.

Drink in all the joy and beauty possible...

Love deeply - with lots of grace and kindness…

Pay attention, be present, and be intentional…

Live in a state of gratitude…

And encourage the tender, sweet moments of life...

To leave their unforgettable fragrance on my heart and soul.


Inspired by these Beautiful Lyrics...

... And I became a friend, a friend would like to have...

Well, I finally read the Good Book

And I took a good long hard look at what I'd do,

if I could do it all again

And then -

I went sky diving

I went Rocky Mountain climbing

...

And I loved deeper

And I spoke sweeter

And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying

...

Like tomorrow was a gift

and you’ve got eternity

to think about what you’d do with it

What did you do with it?

What did I do with it?

What would I do with it?

- Sky diving!!!

I went Rocky Mountain climbing

...

And I loved deeper

And I spoke sweeter

And I watched an eagle as it was flying

...

~ Tim McGraw (Live Like You Were Dying)
