I hope you all had a nice 4th of July. It has always been another one of my favorite holiday's. Right up there by Thanksgiving. As I read around blogland these last couple of days, it seems as if many of us sang God Bless America at church on Sunday. How it blessed me. I will confess it moved me to tears a little. How forunate we all are to live in such a place where we enjoy the freedoms and the privileges that we do. I pray we never forget it, and that God continues to pour out His blessings on America. James and his family were planning on spending the 4th with us, but both of his daughters woke up with fevers yesterday and they decided to stay home and rest. I think ordinarily we would have insisted they come anyway (you can always be sick at Grandma's house just as well too right?) but I have soo much coming up in the next few days with Mel here I decided not to risk catching anything. Summer time sickness is NO fun, and I pray everyone feels good soon. I have a few things on my list still to get done before Mel gets her tomorrow so I will have to keep busy. I am sooo anxious to see her and see how much bigger that tummy has grown in the last 8 weeks. There is MUCH more that I could tell you, like how much we enjoyed my parents who came yesterday for the 4th of July and how good the t-bones were that we bbq'd, the garden that little Jeff has planted with his daddy this week-end and HOW excited he is about it, how warm the weather has been which means the air conditioning has been running A LOT, how the Lord has already begun blessing the church that James is pastoring as it was REALLY packed on Sunday, how excited I am for the baby shower for Mel on sat. and soo looking forward to seeing all the preparations that sweet Jess has put in to it, and I could just go on and on. But I need to begin this day so I will stop for now. I know I will be VERY busy this week, but I will visit in the early mornings as I don't want to miss a thing with all of you. May the Lord bless you all with a wonderful week!
Just had to show this pic of this crane who has been hanging out at the lake by our house...Isn't it beautiful?
