He whom the Son sets free is free indeed! You are truly free when you are a Christian - though the world would have you think that as a Christian you have to live with a bunch of rules and not have any fun. Nothing could be further from the truth. That sense of freedom you now possess is like the fireworks exploding on the 4th of July and filling the air with beauty. You're free because you're no longer a slave to sin, your thoughts, or your emotions - you don't have to be. You're free because you can trust whole-heartedly and even if you don’t get this right the first time, you're given many opportunities in life to learn how to trust.
Enjoy the long holiday weekend; spend time with family and friends (I plan to), eat sensibly and get some exercise in. Finally, meditate on God's goodness to us.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
