Happy 4th of July!!

Sorry - I'm a bit of a slacker lately on my blog entries....but I have a lot to share so I promise lots of them over the next few weeks!

Happy 4th of July everyone! This is just one of many pictures that I took while Mom, Dad, and Grandma were in town. It's from a display called "Fields of Freedom". It is basically thousands of flags that are put up all along the streets and in an open field by my church to honor the holiday and the servicemen/women who make our freedom possible! It was gorgeous to see and really causes you to stop and be thankful for what we know as just a normal way of life.

So as you hang out with family, watch some fireworks (maybe!), and BBQ some delicious food ~ pause for a second and remember why we celebrate the 4th and how lucky we are to enjoy such wonderful freedom. Say a prayer for the soldiers both near and far who do what they do every day in the name of our country.

God Bless America! Enjoy the flags from "Fields of Freedom"
