Fireworks were pretty amazing...
Very appropriate place to be on the 4th of July. Don't you think?
So pleasant and quiet and peaceful...
I am sure that happens a lot in this happy place.
Isn't this beautiful?
So much is troubling and concerning right now.
This verse gives peace to me.
No matter what our nation turns into and trouble we have there is this absolute truth.
We have such a message of hope and peace to share.
Independence Hall marks the place where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed and the government of the Republic of Texas was created.
We walked and talked on the trails that wound around the grounds there and prayed for our country and for our children. I was so moved by part of the prayer my wonderful husband said. It went something like this, "Thank you Father God for our country and our freedom to worship and freedom to do as we please, but thank you much more for our freedom from sin through Jesus and our independence from the world."
Amen and amen. There is nothing like knowing we are saved and no matter what happens in this country or world, we know the ending. We are intrusted with such a beautiful, exciting message of life and hope.
We were also blessed to visit with this bearded, precious son. Peru is sure a long way away and we are ready to see this guy in person. So fantastic to be able to talk this way. Only 4 weeks. Come on home!
So, I hope your 4th of July was a pleasant, family filled, yummy food eaten, fireworks awed at kind of day.
