It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. ~Galatians 5:1
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 those are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ~The Declaration of Independence
I have been concerned for many years that the true history of our country and its founding is not being taught in our public schools. No matter what we might hear to the contrary in our main stream media, it is obvious that so many want to erase, deny and denigrate the fact that this great nation was conceived and implemented in light of Biblical teachings and precepts.
Because of this, I order The Rush Revere Series for our oldest granddaughter, Virginia, so that she can learn, first hand, about our founding fathers and mothers, who were willing to suffer and sacrifice for the privilege of being able to worship Jesus in the way they felt God was calling them to do.
How is this first hand learning? In the Rush Revere series, the substitute teacher, accompanied by his trusty, snarky and politically incorrect horse, Liberty, are enabled, through Liberty's extraordinary powers, to transport students back in time, where they are introduced to life as it unfolds in our country's distant pass. Talk about a field trip!
Virginia is absolutely entranced by these novels that she reads with her mom. Her interest in history has been piqued beyond measure. Because of Liberty, whose unique character makes what could be dry facts approachable, Virginia is quick to tell me that this iconic horse has never failed to enchant and entertain her.
So, seeing as we can't be with our grands in person these days, I decide to order Virginia and her sisters the Liberty Fun Pack.
Virginia asks weeks ago for a Liberty T-shirt,
but I think surprising all of them with the full meal deal won't be a mistake on my part. As it turns out, there's nothing like Liberty!
Oh, how lovingly these girls hug Liberty! And my prayer for them is that they will one day be as adamant about embracing Jesus, finding the true freedom in this life which is only available through Him.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Our founding fathers knew that, and country like no other was formed upon that divine premise.
May we not deny our children and grandchildren knowledge of that divine promise.
Let freedom ring!
Friends, if you would like to order the Rush Revere books and other related items, google Rush Limbaugh's webpage, and click on "store." (For some reason, I can't post a direct link.) All proceeds in the weeks to come will benefit families of police officers serving in our cities, towns and communities. Let's support our men and women in blue, who protect us each and every day!
