Acts of Devotion

by Grace {illustrated}

In America, we are celebrating the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

My favorite “power couple” from this era is John & Abigail Adams.

This is an exert of a letter John wrote to Abigail

regarding this day

&

the

impetus

for

the

title

“Acts of Devotion”

John penned…

“The 2nd day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America.

I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations

as the great anniversary festival.

It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance,

by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.

It ought to be solemnized with pomp & parade-with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires & illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other from this time foreward

forevermore.”

&

so

I

devote

this

sacred moment of time

to

God

Almighty

.

Solemnly.

Purposely.

Recognizing

that

right where I Am

God Is ~

just

as

God

was in the moment that John penned this letter to Abigail.

There is no separation of this Truth.

What Is True

in

2013

was

true

in

1776

&

will

be

true ~

as John states ~

forevermore

.

As

I

devote

myself

to

this

solemn

act

of

recognition

I

see

the

independence

given

.

Freedom

lies

for

myself ~

just as it did for the Patriots

in

God’s

Infinite

Omnipotence

Omnipresence

Omniscience

.

It

was in & through

this

Oneness with God

that

peace was known in their hearts ~

that peace is known in our hearts ~

today


Throughout

this

day

I

will

pause ~

become

still ~

devote

the sacred moment

to

God ~

celebrating

the

One

&

Only

Almighty

Power

that

IS

.

&

so

it

is

&

so

it

does

illumine

me

.

forevermore

.

Thank you, John & Abigail, for your solemn acts ~

your immeasurable devotion ~

to

God

&

to

this

country
