Today (the actual 4th) we are just watching historical movies and eating leftovers! What a great blessing it is to have been born here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. May I never take it for granted. And I do pray for God to continue to bless America because, ultimately, freedom can only come from knowing Him.

I hope, for those of you who are a US citizens, that you are having a happy 4th surrounded by family and friends! I am very thankful for the freedoms we have in this nation, including the ability to live, work, and worship as we choose. Our nation is so far from perfect, but at least for now we are able to still do these without fear of retribution. Our family celebrated yesterday with my husband grilling out (accompanied by potato salad, stuffed eggs, and homemade Butterfinger ice cream) and ending the day with fireworks in our neighborhood.
