Chapter 2, Page 21, Book 13

The best things in life are free...

Today's Word:


Not imprisoned or enslaved; being at liberty.
 Not controlled by obligation or the will of another:

By cutting the cords that no longer need to be there, we can set ourself and others free from the ties that bind. Freedom increases my appreciation of who I am and the boundless blessings in my life.  I say boundless because there just seems to be no end to how many blessings one person can receive in life.  One of my blessings is freedom.  The freedom to be who I am and do what I like to do.

Someone once said that we are free when you control yourself and don't try to control others

By realizing the uniqueness of who we are, we can all find that freedom. If we can let go of comparing ourselves to others and stop trying to be something we are not. we can relinquish any thought of waiting for life to begin. 

Free from what others think of me, free from feeling like I always have to please other people.  

This day's going to be a one of a kind.
'Cause it's my day and there's only one me!

Free is a good word indeed! And I do too think we can be free when we are not trying to control others or expect others to do what we want them to do. Very true and wise words!

Andy - grandson - is just studying the price so many people years ago to become free. We should appreciate our freedom and us it - nicely.
