Happy Independence Day, America! What are you thankful for? I am grateful for so much, and I hope you are too. Freedom is not promised or owed, but rather is a blessing from our gracious and merciful God. Thank you to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, and thank you to those who have and/or are currently serving to protect these freedoms. Yes, we are a Nation of great opportunity, prosperity, and blessing. And to such a Nation comes great responsibility. One Nation under God... God bless America! May we be thankful today, and may we praise His name for His great blessing and favor upon a too-often forgetful and ungrateful people. May we remember that it is not all about us and that we are part of a much bigger story. To Him be the Glory! #independenceday #fourthofjuly #america #usa #thankyou #gratitude #blessing #sketchnotes #handlettering #lettering #midori #travelersnotebook
