Though I’ve Never Gone Without it, Today I Felt Freedom.

Today it wasn’t just a word, or a concept. It was a feeling. It wrapped itself around me with the breeze…

Looking up at the blue, autumn sky, I inhaled the fresh, cool and crisp evening breeze. I saw a couple of beautiful, yellow butterflies, and a tiny bird soaring above the backyard. The tall, bushy treeline is now my ‘mountain’. The sounds of little children playing at the end of the street were all I could hear. Then I thought, this is what freedom feels like. God bless America. I am so blessed to be able to just go outside and gaze up at God’s sky without fear.

So, today at 5:21 p.m. I got out of bed, and now it’s 8:07 and I’m still awake. Today is better than yesterday, and tomorrow, Lord willing, will be better than today. It’s a struggle to be your best self in life. When you choose to carry your own cross and walk with Jesus, things really heat up. Living itself, is a dance, full of patterns, mazes, and tunnels. When we cannot see the light anyplace around us, we must look inside to find it. That’s where we have Him, always. Free or bound.

My most favorite Bible verse EVER:

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” -John 8:36

No matter where you are in this world. If you know Jesus Christ, you can know peace no matter what the situation or circumstances are.

God bless you, dear ones.
