life as it is seen from my heart and soul

Freedom

Leave a comment

Today is Veteran’s Day in the United States. A day we honour the men and women that have fought to keep us independent and American. It makes me think of my freedom in Christ. and my girlfriend Kim that took the time to love me, even though I didn’t understand it. She took me to Young Life and there I met Jesus. My Freedom in Christ began with Kim. and I wish I could tell her how much I love her for that, for taking a chance on me when others wouldn’t. But leukemia took her much too young and my sister-in-Christ is in Heaven singing her heart out to Jesus.
I am so grateful for both of my Freedoms. the freedom to speak, to worship, to pray, to be me.
the garden is put to bed – slightly frosted and still. and the birth of the Saviour of the world, the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars is around the corner. there is much ado about buying presents for others and sales in the shops and what will your holidays be like. but here it is quiet in my home, quiet in my heart, disturbed by the worldliness of what should be revered. if my children were little i would be combatting the culture and regret that i didn’t do it enough when they were small. if we ever are blessed with grandchildren I want to keep it real & honest & homey, hoping they hide in their hearts the Truth of Love and Grace and Mercy.
