What a country! This is a fantastic place to live and work. Do we really recognise it? Sometimes we're hard on ourselves and are quick to see our failures and weaknesses. Let's resist the temptation to take such a great country for granted.
We have the freedom to worship as we choose. We can live our dreams. We can even go on walk-about. The people are friendly and we have all the conveniences one could want. Do you like the ocean front? This is the place for you. Most coastline I've seen is reserved for the public and not dominated by hotels, private dwellings or commercial establishments.
I like it.
Isaiah 58:11 (NIV)
11 The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
