Happy Independence Day! A day to be grateful to all of the brave young men and women who have given their lives to the freedoms that so many Americans can take for granted... Though there are those who will continue to mock our Founding Fathers, we were formed One Nation under God, and I have news for those who would like to think otherwise... God is STILL in control, and will continue to stay and walk beside those who call on His Name. Thank you to those who have fought and protected me, my nation and our nations rights. Thank you, especially, to those who gave their lives.
And a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my first "great"-niece (or is it "grand"?...) born yesterday afternoon, 3 weeks early! Despite a rough entrance to the world, she arrived safe and healthy and both mom, dad AND baby are doing great! Thank you, Jesus! Can't wait to meet her, but probably won't be until next month.
Other than that, we will be spending a semi-quiet evening at home. I am cooking some tri-tip (yummy) with some salad and veggies, and a peach cobbler for dessert! So, I hope you all are able to also spend some time with friends and family enjoying good food and company. Be sure to take some time, also, to remember those who gave their time and lives to make your life style and freedoms possible, and remember those who are still in our military, away from home and families this day.
