A big word. With big attitude. Big "I-can-do-it-myself" gangly almost-adults, right? Wrong.

Independence wears diapers.And, pulling you all away from that adorable girl back to my thoughts, Independence leans on family and friends, rather than going it all alone.

Independence gains freedom by relying on the Lord.

Independence is not something to be squandered, but to be upheld and cherished.

Happy Independence Day. May our great nation continue to enjoy freedom through the sacrifice of so many upholding that freedom... and most especially through relying upon God's infinite power and mercy.
