Thankful for Freedom
I'm also thankful for our home-school, where prayer is permitted, God's Word is central, education occurs around the clock and the calendar, and pocketknives are viewed as tools, not weapons. I believe it's my Biblical responsibility to teach my children, and I'm grateful for the freedom to do so legally.
I'm thankful too that my wife and I can pray together in the morning, and that my family can attend church, talk about the scriptures at the dinner table and sing hymns together -- all without fear of legal persecution. We'll talk about those freedoms together today as we celebrate Independence Day. Let us never take such things for granted.
