Independence Day

One of my favorite things in the world is watching fireworks and reflecting on how thankful I am for the men and women who gave their lives so I could live in this beautiful land of the free and home of the brave.

We are spending this 4th at the beach with some precious friends watching fireworks up and down the beach as far as we can see. I'm in hog heaven. 

Happy Indepence Day! 

"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36

  1. I sent this to Jenni (and myself) recently. I stole it from a website (not sure where) that I "happened upon accidentally." Read your post and though you could maybe use this right now....

    "Life will never live up to your expectations, unless your expectations are simply to embrace life as it unfolds and make the very best of it. You have to lower your expectations and increase your appreciation to improve your happiness. Know that everything is in impeccable order whether you understand it or not. How you react determines how good it turns out for you.

    Something that is really difficult, but totally worth it, is giving up on how you thought it was ‘supposed to be.’ The most beautiful part of this practice is simply returning to the peaceful feeling of being and working with what’s available to you in the moment. This peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you had expected.

    So embrace life’s surprises. Smile and realize that it’s far better to be pleasantly surprised than hopelessly disappointed. "
