Celebrating Independence; Celebrating Remembrance

By: Deb Kitchenmaster

“I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the gloom I can see rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth more than all the means.”  John Adams to Abigail Adams, on the passing of the Declaration of Independence

“This nation was founded by God with a special calling. The people who first came here knew that they were being led here by the Lord Jesus Christ, to found a nation where men, women, and children were to live in obedience to Him…This was truly to be one nation under God.”  Peter Marshall

Here are a few translated excerpts from quotes made by Christoper Columbus about why he came here. “It was the Lord who put into my mind (I could feel his hand upon me) the fact that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no question that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit, because He comforted me with rays of marvelous inspiration from the Holy Scriptures.”

“United we stand” is one of our nation’s mottos and “Out of many, one” is another. These are true words only because a few of the first Americans were willing to pay the price. If we will humble ourselves before our covenant keeping God and renew our relationship with Him (loving one another), He will hear, forgive our sins, and heal our land! This is absolutely possible.
