family's celebration, but we had a full day. The Wilkersons
spent the day with us. Sorry, I got hardly any pictures
of the adults. The Wilkerson guys went fishing with Dad,
in 100 degree weather? But the Lord blessed it. They had
a blast, and came home with some nice fish!
We had BBQ, potato salad, and sherbet to eat, and we did
play some ball games with the kids (which I can't believe
I did in that heat-I'm not a summer person).
|I wish James gave me a better picture!|
|Carrying ice & drinks|
|Time to go fishing!! Oh, yeah!!! YES!!!|
|Fish sizes compared to Dad's foot!|
|Ball game: kick or throw the ball, and someone get it!|
Sorry, this picture is a little misplaced.
|Happy 4th of July!!!|
I'm so thankful to live in the United States of America, and for our precious
freedoms and liberties we have here. I try everyday to take in how blessed
we are and be thankful for it. Let's strive as Christians to do OUR part
to reach others and serve God. In the Bible, in Matthew it says that
we "are the salt of the earth" and "the light of the world". Instead
of talking all the time of those who aren't, let's strive with God's
help, to be that salt and that light, and not let the salt lose its flavor!!!
Oh yes, and thank you to the soldiers who are serving this country
and putting their lives on the line so that we can still enjoy
this freedom like this! You are remembered and prayed for!
"How precious also are Your thoughts unto me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!"
