A glorious sky, a glorious God

There will be fireworks tonight,
and they will no doubt be beautiful.
 
But after a very hot day,
God brought a much-needed rain to our area,
and this photo shows how the sky looked afterwards.
 
 
 
Even though Mark's head is cut off in this photo, (Oops, sorry, Mark!)
this is Mark, Maya and Ben in the kids' parade in our neighborhood.
 
 
Maya and Lauren by our flag...
 
 
Benjamin feeding himself chocolate ice cream...
 
 
Maya enjoying her ice cream
 
It was a wonderful day to celebrate our nation's birthday,
to remember why we celebrate it,
and to be reminded Who our nation is under.
 
Pledge of Allegiance PDF Printable. Lovely for a back to school party or a July Fourth event. PDF sized to fit an 8×10 frame.

Laurie, the picture of the sky is so beautiful! And your grandchildren are adorable. Aren't we so blessed? Glad you had such a nice day. I stayed in ALL day. It's exactly like a steam bath outside here in Jersey. I have been having fun on the computer and reading. Had a delightful day.

Nice seeing your pretty pictures again!

Please send the rain to Phoenix! I loved the photo of the sky; so beautiful. And I love how you quoted Psalm 19:1; how appropriate. What cute grandchildren you have Laurie. Happy 4th of July!

Blessings and love,
Debbie

The Peace of Christ,

GOD'S LOVE FOR U.S.!

God loves each one as an only child is the love of God to the point in continuing following the same path that the storm fell incessantly and that the pain is greater than the forces that have to suffer even the darkness envelop us and try the winds injustice erase the small flame of faith but in the dark tunnel of life the light of God's love shines without ceasing love of God turns tragedy into triumph the curse into a blessing and evil in God's love is the only true path only the love of God produces fruit if planted where ever! God's love is patient ...
hopes all ...
supports all ...
and never ending,
because it is eternal!!
Believe that despite the distance, belong to the same body in which Christ is the Head. I am extremely grateful to our God that gives us this tool that is the Internet, precisely this interaction between bloggers, who united in one purpose (EVANGELISM) disclose Love and Salvation in Christ Jesus.

I'd be flattered if it were part with their precious presence of the frame followers. You're missing the fruit of the Spirit.

By the way, if not already following my blog here I leave the invitation:
