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

I think life would just be easier if I didn't have to worry about this and than and everything in between.  But I also know that God has given me all of this for a reason.  It's all about that divine balance of life.  Some seasons are meant for certain things while others are put on hold.  But that doesn't mean we can't come back to them later.

I Just Adore Them!

Something tells me I'm going to love them forever!

Just Don't Give Up!

There will always be those days where you're not feeling 100% and things might not feel like they are happening for you.  I'm not trying to sound negative, just keeping it real...  It happens to the best of us.  Don't stress over it, relax and remember you always have tomorrow to get it right.  Just don't give up.

For better or worse, in sickness or in health, storming ahead or tak
ing a step back, in beauty or in brokeness...  I'm grateful to walk these fleeting paths of life with this man.

I don't post about him enough!!!  I'm thankful for him and forever thankful for the love and special care he pours into each of our hearts.  Thanks for all the hard work you've put into our lives all these years.  ALOT of time it's a thankless job but it doesn't matter, he keeps driving on, doing what he's gotta do.

Happy Father's Day Mark!  May your day be blessed abundantly!

Don't forget to tell your heros you love them ~ Happy Father's Day ~ Mark Jr., Reggie & Ken!
