Day of Deliverance

The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.      -John Adams

He was only off by two days. You can read more here: Independence Day

The thing that stands out most to me in John Adams letter to his wife, Abigail is “It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.” 

Smart man. May our God, bless our America.

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.     – 2 Chronicles 7:14  NIV
