We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. (from the Constitution
"...where the Spirit of the Lord is , there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. (from the Declaration of Independence)
I am very THANKFUL for the freedoms and Liberties I enjoy! Not only the freedoms of going where I want or doing what I want. Choosing how to live my life, however not being naive to the fact that it did not come free. Thank you to those who have given much for these FREEDOMS!
More then anything I am Thankful that I have spiritual freedom that enjoy thanks to a Loving Father in Heaven who prepared a plan long ago so that we may all return to him; thanks to our Savior, Jesus Christ!
"Wherefore men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself". 2Nephi 2:27 (the Book of Mormon)
