Here it is. Day 11 of a month of Thankfulness. It’s funny how you have an idea of what you are going to write about and then BAM it all changes.
Not that my reasons have changed. Maybe just my attitude about my thankfulness.
So starting today I will share two things I am thankful for.
First read this.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Know what that is?
It’s the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. The one that allows us to say whatever we would like to. No one can take away our freedom of speech.
I love that.
Now, God doesn’t want us to say things out of spite, or hate, or anything other than love. I try to remember that at all times.
It seems that I have offended people with what I talk about. I guess I should apologize. Actually, I wanna just say, if you don’t like what I have to say, please feel free to head on over to another blog and read it. I am aware that I cannot please everyone and I don’t even have the strength or desire to try.
But. . . . . . .
If I can help just one person get through something hard, see things a little different, change for the better, or draw a little closer to God, then all of my efforts have been worth it. I write this blog for me. In the hopes that it helps people see what our homeschooling life is all about. I am blessed beyond anything I have ever deserved.
Another thing, feel free to comment. That’s what it is there for. All I ask is that you be respectful. I would never say anything to intentionally hurt anyone. I mean that. If you have an issue with something I have said, maybe it is because it hits a little closer to home than you would like to admit.
The old saying “ the truth hurts'” is sometimes truer than we would like for it to be. I am not perfect. Haven’t ever claimed to be.
Don’t expect it or you will be sadly disappointed.
So, today I am thankful for the first amendment to our constitution that allows me to freely say and write what I want to convey. Like it or don’t. . It’s my right. And yours. And for the Veteran’s who have fought for our freedoms. Happy Veteran’s Day.
Secondly, I am thankful for unanswered prayers. Garth Brooks knew what he was talking about.
That is all.
