Day to Day Adventures

Freedom is NOT Free

It is so easy to just NOT think.  We live day to day minding our own business and if we just DON’T think then everything is easy & flows along smoothly.

Unfortunately life isn’t like that.


I discovered that when we started to “do” school at home.  History wasn’t quite what I remembered from my years of school.  We started reading books that pointed to God’s hand in history.  We read books about famous Americans who listened to God’s leading and it changed their lives.  Wow I guess that is what we had done in homeschooling.  Were we making history?


There were so many people who really thought about how their lives should be lived.  They didn’t choose to just NOT think.  They listened and acted where they could make a difference.

Today is the first Tuesday in November.  I chose to act where I could today.  I voted and I am thankful that I am FREE and live in this wonderful country.  It seems like a small thing but it isn’t because I had to THINK and take action.  I hope that I am walking a life that shows my children how thankful I am for those who have gone before us to secure that freedom. 


Help my children to live lives that are always overflowing with thankfulness, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.                    Col. 2:7, Ephesians 5:20
