During the Revolutionary War, the bell was placed on a wagon, moved 60 miles west to Allentown, and hidden in the floorboards of the Zion Reformed Church to keep it from falling into British hands, where it would have no doubt been melted down to make cannons. After the war, it was rung every July 4 until sometime around 1835, when it cracked
again. No one knows exactly when the Liberty Bell cracked the second time. It is a mystery of history.
Today the 250-year-old icon is a popular attraction in Philadelphia and only rung on special occasions. Many people do not know the bell was first called the Liberty Bell not by patriots of the revolution but by the abolitionists fighting slavery. They chose this name because of the Bible inscription on the bell from Leviticus 25:10 that reads: “Proclaim
liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants.” In retrospect, the cracked bell was a remarkably apt metaphor for a country that was literally split over slavery.
Jesus said whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. So how much does real liberty cost? True liberty involves giving our whole hearts to Christ so He can break our chains of sin. “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).
Swap for: English muffin
You don’t need to cut carbs altogether – just choose better bread! For breakfast, swap a bagel (which can contain as many as 400 calories) for a 150-calorie English muffin, and save yourself 250 calories.
Swap for: Sprinkled cheese topping
Say cheese! You can still enjoy this satisfying snack without overdoing it. One tablespoon of Parmesan cheese has only 22 calories, while an ounce has more than 120. Try sprinkling it as a topping rather than hiding whole slices in your meal.
Chocolate Ice Cream
Swap for: Chocolate fudge pop
Did you know that some chocolate fudge pops are only 100 calories each? Compare that to nearly 300 calories in one cup of chocolate ice cream – you can have two chocolate fudge pops and still save yourself 100 calories. Now that’s some tasty math!
Swap for: Popped chips
Dieting doesn’t have to mean deprivation. If you’re craving potato chips (which will average about 300 calories for 2 ounces), swap them for popped chips; they’re 240 calories for the same 2-ounce size, saving you 60 or more calories.
Swap for: Two slices of bacon
Everybody loves bacon – and with good reason! You can enjoy two slices of bacon for about 80 calories, which is almost 100 calories less than one pork sausage link that weighs in around a whopping 170 calories.
Swap for: Spaghetti squash
Spaghetti squash is low-calorie (31 calories per cup) and a great alternative to real pasta (221 calories per cup). Once it’s baked, the inside of the squash easily shreds into spaghetti-like strands. Toss it with your favorite pasta sauce and you can enjoy noodles while saving almost 200 calories!

AN AMAZING FACT: After Stan Caffy and his wife Linda married, as part of combining households, she urged him to clean out the garage. Stan, an admitted pack rat, was reluctant to part with a reprint of the Declaration of Independence he kept hanging in his shop. He bought the yellowed document about 10 years earlier at a yard sale for a couple of dollars. Linda won the clean-out-the-garage debate, and so in March 2006 she rolled up the old parchment and took it, along with an antique table, and donated them to a local thrift store.
Fast forward one year. Michael Sparks was visiting the Music City Thrift Shop in Nashville, where he bought a candle holder, a set of salt and pepper shakers, and a yellowed print of the Declaration of Independence. Sparks, a music equipment technician, also figured the document was a worthless modern reprint, so he paid the asking price of $2.48 and headed home.
After looking over the document for a few days, he wondered if it might be older than he thought. So he clicked around on the Internet to do some research and soon realized, based on a number of clues, he had purchased one of only 200 official copies of the Declaration of Independence! Copies of the original document were commissioned by John Quincy Adams in 1820, when he was secretary of state. They were printed by William Stone in 1823. Of those 200 early copies, only 35 had been found intact. Michael now had number 36.
It took a year for Sparks to have the print authenticated and preserved. Then he put it up for auction in Burlington, North Carolina. The bidding opened at $125,000 and climbed to the sale price of $477,650. Stan Caffey confessed he felt like the village idiot when he read in the paper the document he had hanging in his garage for 10 years was this rare copy of the Declaration of Independence.
This is not the only time a precious national document has been misplaced or unrealized. During the reign of King Josiah in Judah, a lost parchment was found. “Now when they brought out the money that was brought into the house of the Lord, Hilkiah the priest found the Book of the Law of the Lord given by Moses. Then Hilkiah answered and said to Shaphan the scribe, ‘I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the Lord’” (2 Chronicles 34:14, 15). Finding this precious document brought about a national revival. Have you discovered the authentic truth in the Word lately?

What many don’t know is that baby Isaac wasn’t expected to live. He was born prematurely on Christmas Day in 1642. Isaac was named after his father, who died three months before he was born. He was so small his mother thought he might not survive. She said he was tiny and could fit into a quart mug jar!
There are many stories in Scripture of babies who almost didn’t live. Perhaps the greatest is the life of Jesus. Herod was angry when the wise men from the East did not return from paying a visit to the Christ-child, and he later ordered that all the children less than two years of age in Bethlehem be slaughtered. But God intervened and Joseph was warned in a dream to escape to Egypt.
God had plans for Isaac Newton and he lived to be one of the greatest God-fearing scientists of all time.
