Happy Fourth!


Saturday, we in the States will celebrate Independence Day. There will be picnics, family gatherings, trips to the beach and of course Fireworks!
While you are celebrating, remember to thank God for our country and while you are at it, pray for our leaders and the future of the Country, too.

In the words of the old song by Irving Berlin:
God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under." - Ronald Reagan

God bless America again!

We are celebrating on our patio - just the three of us. Ben called to see what we were having for dinner. He said that he remembers with great fondness the barbequed chicken of years gone by. He remembers sitting on our front porch and watching the fireworks.

We will not be staying up for the fireworks. Church comes early in the morning.

I hope that you and your family have a wonderful evening of celebration.

Love the quote from Ronald Reagan! I had never heard that before but I believe it holds many truths to our current crisis today!

Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July and blessings come your way this weekend!
