Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
~ Galatians 5:1 ~

As long as we have memories, Yesterday remains; As long as we have hope, Tomorrow waits, As long as we have friendship, Today is beautiful.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
~ John 8:36 ~

We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
~William Faulkner ~

Hello friends. (smile) I encourage you to reset and unplug from time to time. It brings a freshness and renewal from the day-to-day challenges in life. (smile)

Everyday, we are free to choose the mercy and grace that God provides. Yesterday, I rejoiced because I was free to enjoy a day, of my life, without the things and stuff that causes me to rush. (smile) Praise The Lord!

How about you? Do you ever feel rushed? It’s a beautiful thing to realize it will get done and the world will keep turning, if it doesn’t. It just might be late. Praise The Lord, it will get done!

How many times do we rush because we think ______________ (fill in the blank). We are free to walk by faith and remember Romans 8:28, how God can work all things out.

Praise The Lord, for those things and stuff, He has broken the bondage of and set us free.

Wahoo, I am free from rushing. (smile)

Faith, in God, compliments being free, to choose living, with His mercy and His grace in every situation. Free from worries. Free from doubts. Free from the woulda, coulda, shoulda. That’s practicing living free. (smile)

Friends, be blessed today knowing we are free indeed! (smile)
