What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
I had an amazing time celebrating yesterday, as I know the majority of America did.
Why did we celebrate?
Well, most of us were taking advantage of a day off.
But the reason we celebrate?
We celebrate our freedom.
We live in a beautiful and place were we have freedom that is not given in many other places because of the sacrifices that many made on our behalf.
So we celebrate.
We eat hotdogs and go swimming and watch fireworks and spend the day with the people we love.
Because we are free, and that is worth celebrating.
I had an amazing day yesterday, and I am so thankful for the freedom I have.
It made me think of how I am not only free because of the country I live in, but I am free in another aspect, too.
I have an ultimate freedom because of an ultimate sacrifice.
The Bible reminds us over and over again that we have freedom. That we have been set free.
I am so incredibly thankful for that freedom. That is a freedom worth celebrating.
You have been given the incredibly precious gift of ultimate freedom.
Not just sometimes, on special occassions.
Not just on Sundays.
Live a life of celebration because of the freedom you have been given.
Jesus didn’t come so we could have stuffy, boring lives that don’t really amount to anything.
He came so we could have life.
Not only life, but abundant life.
And abundant life is worth celebrating.
An abundant life is a life celebrated.
