Sunday Thoughts (let's talk freedom)

When I come to Nashville to visit the folks at 4Patriots, I always walk by the same store in the airport.

It's filled with t-shirts and hats and sweatshirts, with all kinds of little sayings and pictures of stick figures having fun and enjoying themselves.

It's got a simple message: Life is Good.

Sure, it's hokey. Don't we all aspire to have a good life?

I haven't met too many people who say, "I love being miserable!"

But sometimes, we miss the fact that life in America is indeed, pretty good. And we insist on making it bad for ourselves.

It's all about perception. How you look at your life determines what you do in life.

And your life is, when all is said and done, a summary of your actions.

So, if you want to change your life, and make it better, then you may need to change how you look at it.

Like focusing on what you have, not what you don't have.

And I think that idea… with all this crazy stuff going on in the world… is more important than ever.

Especially on July 4th. 

Does our country have problems? Sure. But they pale in comparison to what others are going through.

America is a very, very good place to live. And Americans are the best people in the world. Don't let anything get in the way of that.

So this fourth of July I'm going to commit to being a good American. And you should too.

And I think if we all do that… then America will continue to be a great place for a long, long time.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hi Jeff – I enjoy your short “talks” because they are just plain common sense – which are timeless.
We seem to make life much more complicated than it needs to be ( simple is better).
As I see it God has blessed us in living in this the USA but with this blessing comes a huge responsibility
in keeping it that way for the next generations. The best way I know to do that is to acknowledge God and have much AWE of Him. This leads to gratitude then to kindness and humility etc etc.
Thanks for listening and look forward to your “next one”

I have been alone most of my life because my Dad was in the military, always gone, he taught the first astronauts how to fly before they ever went to the moon, I shook their hands before they took off. My dad has written multiple books, and I never read them!!!!! His name is Art Schmitt.He is still alive, I talk to him at least once a week. I have had horses and I eat chocolate every day is what has helped me to keep on truckin’ in this thing called life!

Hi I am Harry Chace. Let’s talk freedom, what is freedom? Why do we have freedom, we have freedom because brave men and women that love this country fought and gave their lives so we could have America. America was an experiment that was working greatly the greatest experiment in the world to have a country that was free, free to do as you please, maybe sometimes suffering the consequences of doing as you please lol.
I am 72 years into this life who knows what’s around the corner.
America is not just a word America is inside every single Patriots that has ever walked these lands, every single Patriot man woman or child that stood and made a pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. Reagan said it best if we lose freedom here there is no place to go please be prepared to do whatever is necessary to keep America free we have people that are trying to kill it and that cannot be allowed
