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!
