When I first heard that the Fourth of July was on Sunday this year, I have to admit, at first I was a bit down. Our family loves the parades, fireworks, picnics and everything associated with this holiday. However, it being a Sunday and the only local parade being around the same time as our Sunday services we had a choice to make. Which to go to? It wasn’t a hard choice at all.
We went to Church and I’ve been in gratitude all day for the blessing of living in such a great country. A place Founded by Men of Faith, upon principles of honor and integrity.
The Prayer at Valley Forge
The artist responsible for this painting of George Washington at Valley Forge passed away this last week. Arnold Friberg was a National Treasure. His talent will be missed.
Yes, we’re still having Watermelon, corn-on-the-cob and many other yummy treats. And I’m sure we’ll watch fireworks from our back deck this evening. But I’m grateful for the chance to have a more simple, peaceful, and prayerful 4th of July. So grateful to my Heavenly Father for the Freedom’s I’m granted by living here.
