"Good morning world! Today I'm thinking about fireworks and freedom. Of course the reason freedom and fireworks have come to mind has to do with the fact that today is the Fourth of July!
That means in the United States we have found yet another reason to celebrate and another season to appreciate the great freedoms we have been given.
Saying that Happily here in this country we still have freedom of speech
and the freedom to search for happiness also liberty.
We still have the freedom to do pretty much whatever we want to do. We additionally have the freedom to be who we want to be, as long as we don't hurt anybody !
Accordingly in our red white, and blue freedom this country is very great indeed. And I think you will agree with me that statement is true since....
a lot of you out there truly can not appreciate that kind of freedom.
Sadly with what is missing in your countries regulations, and your governments censorship you may not have the same kind of neat freedoms we celebrate today.
So that leads me to think about the way we celebrate freedom .
And what freedom really means?
Reflecting on that question in this country on the Fourth of July we blow up and send up delightful beautiful things called fireworks into the nighttime.
Just in case you don't know what a firework is......fireworks are gorgeous streaking bolts of ammunition shot out of tubes that blaze into the sky.
And once those fireworks are high enough they ignite quickly, then detonate.
Next in their blowing up they rapidly disintegrate into beautiful shows of rainbow lights.
We also have things called sparklers that can be held in your hand and as you light them into flames they will blaze sparkling fire right where you stand! Then in their burning sparkles you can even write your name in the night sky on the Fourth of July!
Yes on the Fourth of July as we get together to celebrate this wonderful independent freedom we cherish, the skies are alive with blazing color. And in the firework displays all of our eyes are lifted high!
Yes all eyes are looking into the sky as we watch the fireworks flying by. And as we marvel then clap at the wonder call fireworks they explode into glorious light but
then sadly are gone in the blink of an eye!
and what true freedom really is?
Jointly I also ponder how long will freedom actually last?
Then those thoughts lead me to question how do we go about finding true freedom. And further what is the reason in our season for endless fireworks!
Well as I explore each of these explosive considerations I guess I need to first think about what "freedom" really is......and researching that definition ....the dictionary defines freedom....
"as the right to enjoy privileges of citizenship, the right of belonging to membership and the right to celebrate the connection to community and country "
So in other words as we enjoy what is left of cool freedom RIGHT here on earth some of us are free to enjoy our life's breath the way we want to,
as long as we follow certain rules!
is that really truly freedom?
Is that the best freedom offers?
And if that is freedom.... how long does freedom last? In a similar thought if Liberty is missing how can we get freedom back!
Absolutely as a lot of us know in different countries
( and sadly what a lot of us in this country are finding out )
freedom can be fleeting!
How we go about finding freedom?
And how should we truly celebrate freedom when we have located sweet liberty.
Naturally in all of my "free" thoughts I know nothing on this earth lasts forever in the past, present, or the future.
And freedom is definitely one of the things that will be going away very fast!!
Yes, I know I already stated that, but as we are thinking about freedom and how important fleeting liberty is to us we have to realize that freedom is very fragile!
And just like our fragile breath, (and all of the Rest of the things we enjoy)....freedom as well as everything else.... can be taken away today!
Therefore opening and closing
many doors (and jumping out of some windows) I am always thinking more of our
Eternal Freedom than our lifelong freedom,
Even If we live 100 years, when you think of that span of time.... that is clearly a very short period on earth to be alive.
Therefore I think it's very important that we all start thinking long-term.....
and we start thinking about what true freedom really is!
Henceforth opening up yet another door.....we need to think about the pure beauty found in our
And Immortal Freedom!
Accordingly we must search for the Forever Fireworks as we accept Jesus Christ into our earthly and eternal life!
Yes indeed as we break the sinful chains that bind us, we must look for true Divine Freedom that will occur only as we lift our eyes to the Heavenly sky!" Joslin Fitzgerald

Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
