Happy Birthday America! We have so much to be thankful for. We are a bruised, battered nation that has caused ourselves many pains but the Lord is still on the throne and we are still victorious because of Him. As you watch fireworks go off this month, not only enjoy your company but be reminded that those sounds of the fireworks were once sounds of live ammunition and bombs. Never forget our men and women whom have served our country that allows us to enjoy our freedoms. Let us be very mindful this month of how good God has been to us and how He desires for us to live in fellowship with Him. You are a blessing Oakland. Enjoy the rest of the summer and continue to invite family and friends to join you at church each and every week!
