The JOY of Art - Celebration of Freedom

Barbara Higgins-Bond

From sea to shining sea . . .

These artists convey so many themes of America's freedom celebration - country, parades, nostalgic, whimsical, families, fireworks, folk art, small towns, beloved pets. But these thoughts from Susie Larson's daily blessing say it best . . .

"May this be your declaration of dependence: It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set me free. I will live with boldness, courage, and conviction. I will love freely, give generously, and pray passionately. And, I will entrust my whole soul and story to God because I belong to Him. Thank you, Jesus, You've set me FREE!"
