Three things make this freedom week:
1) my one friend has resigned from work and she finishes on Wednesday - so excited for her :)
2) it's Freedom Day on Thursday. For the non-South Africans, here's a write-up from Wikipedia
Freedom Day is a South African public holiday (its national day), celebrated on 27 April. It celebrates freedom and commemorates the first post-apartheid elections held on that day in 1994. The elections were the first non-racial national elections where everyone of voting age of over 18 from any race group, including foreign citizens permanently resident in South Africa, were allowed to vote. Previously, under the apartheid regime, non-whites had only limited rights to vote.
3) we're going on a little break this week too - woohoo - our first holiday since moving into this house and high time, if you ask me!
Of course, freedom is my number 1 value so I'm very passionate about the concept of freedom. Turns out it's important to God too. This is my favourite scripture about freedom:
2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” NIV
