HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, AMERICA!

Since we had our grand celebration yesterday on the 3rd, it really doesn't seem like today is a holiday.  We were blessed to have the Applegate and Telman families join us for a cook-out and homemade ice cream.  With 17 children running around, everyone had someone to play with.  The ladies even sneaked off for a couple of hours to roam the market, and the men enjoyed a couple of games of Wii golf.  It was a fun-filled day, and we all enjoyed ourselves.

My July 4th "Cake:" Vanilla & Strawberry ice cream layered into a bundt pan

But my thoughts go to the men and women stationed around the world - both military and government employees - who have devoted their lives to keep America free.  America has strayed far from the godly principles it was founded upon, but I am still proud to be called an American.  There is no other country like her, and I will continue to pray for her.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD"
