On Christmas Day, 1776, George Washington and the Continental Army attacked a British force that was composed primarily of fierce Hessian mercenaries after crossing the Delaware River in freezing conditions, catching the enemy unawares and winning a major engagement for the first time!
Their present that day was the victory and supplies they needed badly.
Today, men stand guard for us to protect that freedom (our son is on duty at this moment) and as we are grateful to our Savior for the salvation and freedom he has brought us as a gift to us, let us be thankful for those who maintain our security in this world, be they military, firemen, police, etc.
Let us pray also that General Washington is not spinning in his grave as we squander our freedoms and liberties to vote ourselves the riches of others to enrich ourselves with Obamaphones, Obamamoney and a welfare state.
