Happy 234 & "The Eds"

Happy Independence Day!






Enjoyed: Watching fireworks with Michael, Andrew, neighbors and old church friends Thursday night

Started: painting our shutters last night

Watched: the Argentinian god humiliated as his team was soundly defeated by Germany in the World Cup yesterday

Talked: to my four-year-old neighbor when he dropped by for a visit last evening

Decided: to start reading and posting notes on Matthew again (join me)

Reflected: upon "to whom much is given of him much will be required" as it relates to my blessed life in the United States

Reminded: by a friend's Facebook note that not all people in the world go to bed safe and full

Challenged: by a local pastor to not idolize America and remember God (not "God and country") comes first

Grieved: that a friend lost her father on the morning of her birthday

Hugged: my little bug after missing him so much while he was at camp

Enjoyed: the crepe myrtles in full blossom around the area now -- God's creation is simply awesome!

( Talked: to my four-year-old neighbor when he dropped by for a visit last evening)
ok i am sleepy here so didn't get it, was he four years old? or was he your neighbor for four years ?
But you said old, so he is 4 years old ? if he 's , then that's so cute :)

(Reminded: by a friend's Facebook note that not all people in the world go to bed safe and full) , now that's need a complete post, doesn't it? it so sad how the world is :(

( Grieved: that a friend lost her father on the morning of her birthday), avery sad news indeed. Poor they, it's a date she would never forgot. May God grant him peace and take care of his family.

He likes to come over and visit and he likes for us to go to his house. We were there last night celebrating the holiday. :)

You write good posts making people aware of hunger in the world. I admire you for those thought-provoking posts.

Yeah, I was so sad for Colleen. Her birthday was June 30 and we were all wishing her a Happy Birthday on Facebook and then later she posted that her father was found dead that morning. Heartbreaking! :(

Thanks for your comment!

Lat, how fun! Youth Day, huh? Is that to celebrate the young people in your country? I am not sure where you live. Do you have school year-round? Here most students are out for the summer. I hope your children enjoyed their day off school! :)
