I was really surprised how when we first moved to England 6 weeks prior to Independence Day in 2008 just how emotional we would be on that very day. I literally cried about not being home to celebrate with our family & friends this momentous time of the year that commemorates our independence, freedom, patriotism, and blessings.
Last night we were at the home of some friends along with over 300 other people to honor our country. This family welcomed all of us in style with food, games, contests, all ending in a beautiful fireworks show. And then as the fireworks were going off, "Born in the U.S.A." came on by Bruce Springsteen and I felt tremendous joy to be back here.
The weather for this entire holiday weekend has been glorious here in Michigan and I couldn't feel more blessed by God than I do right now. I hope you are enjoying life wherever you are, too.
Happy Independence Day!!
