"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

We had such a wonderful 4th of July! It's amazing how even though politically I am saddened by the state of our union, I still feel such pride in our country and our people.

Church on Sunday was so moving! I am so thankful for the freedom we have in our country to worship God openly and also the freedom I have in Jesus! This made me weapy during worship. They honored our service men and women with recognition and song. Seeing everyone stand who has defended our freedom makes me cry! I feel so indebted to each of them and often find myself unsure of how to adequately say thank you. I was so glad our church took a Sunday to do this!!!

On monday we moved our stuff in the house, but will not be sleeping there for a bit longer (no grass yet and no daddy- 2 things that without, I get grumpy quick). We are finishing up our 5th week without Blake and boy is it hard. He surprised me the other night with news of a flight home for the weekend on the 13th! We are going to surprise the kids!! This made me one ecstatic girl!!!!!
