Happy Independence

We celebrated the fourth of July with friends and family. Granny and Pop were here and we invited over the Crumrines. JD broke in the new grill. The kids had a great time on their pirate ship and we ate well and watched a magnificent show of fireworks. 

I was grateful to be an American. To have the freedom to pray before our meal, to gather together, to come and go in safety. I was mindful of the men and women who have in the past and are currently defending the right of freedom. Thankful that they are willing to preserve, at whatever the cost, what we all hold dear. 

It was a great day. It's a great country. Thank God and to Him be the glory!
