I wish my camera battery hadn't died when five of the children from church broke out in song tonight during the fireworks..."Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, dear America! Happy birthday to you!". Now, I'm not that huge into patriotic fanfare but hearing that song coming from their mouths on their own initiation was something special.
So, speaking of fireworks, we did our usual party cookout thing with the awesome peeps from church before we all headed to Callaway Gardens to enjoy the free fireworks on the lawn. When we prayed with the children tonight before bed, we thanked God to be living in a country where we can worship who and how we want. I pray the same is true for my children in 20, 30, 40, 50+ years.
Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
Look at all those dads watching the kids....so encouraging to see men of faith serving others and loving their families.
This pictures speaks joy to me. All three of these men are taking care of their daughters by the pool while freeing their wives to converse and enjoy a break.
