F*R*E*E*D*O*M, Wagon and Watermelon - the hit of the day!

Happy 4th of July - everyone!!

Thoughts of our Red, White and Blue were all over our family gathering yesterday...

~ Cherry Squares~
(recipe to follow later this week)

Wagon and Watermelon.  The hit of the day ~ for the Little's.

My hubby and Uncle Vern were sitting here like this, talking together.  Having a real conversation- for awhile.  As in, back-to back, they faced each other.

I noticed this.  And rather loudly, totally off the cuff, I mentioned across the picnic area, (unintentionally getting every one's attention, by now)...
So, this is what they call "the meeting of the hinds".

**Needless to say, that was another "hit" of the day.

It was a wonderful family gathering. A lot of our family were unable to be with us - which was hard.
But.  The day was beautiful.  The weather couldn't have been better.  The view across the lake was "relaxing".  As you saw, we had plenty of delicious food.  The little ones had fun - plumb wore our two out - and they played HARD.

As you think about the blessing of
that we get to enjoy, marked specifically on this day.

Remember, even more so, the Freedom you have in Christ Jesus - if you are a Child of God.

Romans 6:22
"But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life."

Romans 7:1-2
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me FREE from the law of sin and death."

Enjoy, the rest of your day!!!  Your family!!!  Your FREEDOM!!!
