Celebrating our Independence

Happy 4th of July!  We're having a great family weekend, lots of picnics, friends, and fun. We got to see some early fireworks last night. Even though the noise of fireworks freaks out David, I held him tight as he plugged his ears. Over the next twenty minutes he went from "Is it over? Please be over!" to "Oooh, pretty" to "Wow!! That was fantastic!" to "Do it again, ka-BOOM!" to "Is it over? On no, please let it not be over!"  He still covers his ears, but I'm proud of my little man who faced his fears and conquered them. The power of knowing you're wrapped in your Father's protective arms and love :)

For a great reflection on Independence day and the faith of several of our founding fathers, see Mark Batterson's post today, or Mark Beeson's post who points out John Adams' remark: "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate in the government of any other."
