As American’s we have so many freedoms, people in other countries don’t even have the chance to worship God because it’s illegal. We have the freedom to vote for our leaders.

8. God’s Grace
We saved the best for last. Isn’t it so amazing that God has saved us? Grace is a gift, we can’t earn it, it’s not based on deeds, but it’s only because of God’s love for us. It’s the ultimate gift, a true act of selfless love. This is something we should never cease to be so thankful for. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
