THE FUTURE OF AMERICA ; WHICH LEGACY WILL YOU LEAVE?

Kevin Carden Art

What legacy do you want to leave for your children?
.
It’s hard for me to explain to my children what’s going on in OUR Nation. They didn’t understand why they had to miss the last part of their school year.

My 4-year-old thought she was in trouble. She was sick a week before lock down and missed school. She thought she was the reason for not being able to see her friends in pre-school.
.
My family isn’t the only household. There are so many others with personal stories.
.
Missionaries were sent home, businesses were shut down, church was ’canceled,’ work was moved to home, jobs were lost, and the list continues.
.
In the middle of all of this, we had a massive earthquake where I live.
.
My kids were worried about all of these things—Then they had protests and riots to process.
.
As a dad, I have to save the day. It’s my job. Just like all of the mom’s and dad’s. How have you done that?
.
Have you taught your children about the American dream? Have you taught your children about Jesus Christ?
.
Who allows us to follow our dreams? I would say WE do. Our Heavenly Father gave us agency. Our actions in society determine the outcome. We can either destroy ourselves or allow God into ALL of our activities.
.
”In God We Trust”
.
When I think of America the Beautiful, I think of a loving God. I think of a place the Lord created for us to enjoy.
.
So, I ask. Are you enjoying America? If not, why and what can you do personally to make a small difference?
.
The answer is not hate and violence. The answer is love and Christlike behavior.
.
Patriotism is trying always to give more to the Nation than we receive. It is selfless service. — Ezra Taft Benson
.
When we safeguard the Heavenly Nature of Freedom, we shall have peace on earth good will to men. — Thomas S. Monson
.
What example and legacy do you want to leave for the future of America? Let’s think of these things as we enter the week of Independence Day!! Happy 4th.
