As I write this, I see Mel Gibson on the big screen screaming “Freedom”. You know it too I’m sure. Freedom can mean so many things to so many people. I can’t speak for you but here is a small take on this global subject:
Freedom can mean:
- No poverty
- Enough food for everyone
- Sharing of possessions
- No work!
- Being in the open air
- No debt
- Good health
To me, freedom means:
- spending time with my husband and family
- able to practice my faith in peace and security
- the ability to take a holiday/break when I want to
- enough money in the bank to be able to give some away and still pay my bills and commitments
- being outside and loving nature/creation and the health to enjoy it
- growing my fruit and veg
It is good to recognise that I have freedom. I don’t always appreciate it because there is a tendency to become complacent. I often imprison myself because I don’t realise what I have. I can often live with a “spirit of poverty” because I am not operating out of gratitude.
Today, I am grateful for my husband, for my life in the UK, for my family, for the opportunities that present themselves to me every day. I am also grateful for you – you readers who visit this blog and comment on my posts. Thank you so much.
