Thank God

What a beautiful sight. My daughter facinated at the bright lights filling the air. My toddler in my arms falling asleep as I protected her from the continuous booms. My brother, his wife, child, and mother-in-law being lost in the fiery display setting aside the trouble that otherwise consumes them. I felt so blessed.

Last night as I sat as close as possible to a great fireworks show I wondered what God must think of all the commotion that goes along with our Independence Day celebrations. 

I would suggest that the display is not his entertainment or fullfilment. His satisfaction and glory is all relative to the attitude which we present during such affairs that matters to God. Do we step back to thank him for the freedoms that we have in this country? Do we only send up our fears in regards to its current state? What do you think?
