An Independence Day Shindig

Monday, July 4, 2016

We had an amazing time today with family and friends celebrating Independence Day.  Mark brought out the grill and we hosted a backyard barbecue enjoying the summer sun, swimming, some pick-up games of basketball and a few rounds of beer pong.  Some time after an awesome meal, dessert and more swimming, the group gathered in the driveway to light up the night with some fireworks.  Our show was amateur at best, but definitely memorable and stress-free with no crowds to worry over.  The enthusiasm of our little group was through the roof as we lit up the night sky with our big, loud, vibrant and dazzling spectacle of lights.

Who knows, we had such a fun time, a tradition just may have been developed with this spontaneous 4th of July backyard barbecue.  If you weren't there, well there's always next year...

It may not always feel like it, but you are making a difference every single day.

You are ROYALTY!

God never intended for us to look to others for the kind of love only He can give.  Find your identity in Him alone.  He is the only one who can bring true joy and fulfillment.  Our greatest happiness was never meant to be found in relationships, careers, accomplishments, or things.  That void in your heart, or the loneliness that won't go away will only be filled by Jesus.  He is the lover of your soul, and the only one whose love will never let you down.  His love never fails.  Psalm 136

You are ROYALTY: crowned, called and cherished!  Nobody has the right or ability to take that away.  XO Mommy
