Happy Independence Day

It's Independence Day and a beloved holiday in the United States. As we gather around for picnics and cookouts today to celebrate our independence in the U.S., let's remember where our true freedom comes from. It comes from God above. Many have gone into battle to gain and preserve this freedom. Many of you reading this are fortunate to also live in countries that allow you to have our independent lives with laws, of course, to govern that this independence remains stable.

The Bible also speaks of freedom and liberty for all who believe and call upon the name of Jesus Christ for salvation. Being a child of Christ is freedom, because regardless of the problems and chaos of this world, there will be a day when all of this will pass away. All of our problems will be forgotten when we enter heaven to live with him. While we're here, though, we have to make the best of it that we can. God's Word helps us with that. 

Read a few Scriptures from the Bible that declare this freedom and liberty that God has promised. Jesus died to free us from the chains of bondage that sin offers. Once you're free from those chains, and experience the joy that God meant for you, I don't think you'll want to be taken captive by your sins again. Problems won't be as burdensome, because you're giving God control of those. You'll be thankful even when the world says you have nothing to be thankful for. Because you have plenty of reasons to be thankful - freedom from sins, love of God, eternity after this life that will be free from pain and disappointments.

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
