On the 4th, we made it up early and went to main street for the parade. The boys and Lily got flags and Lily thought this was the greatest thing…EVER!
The heat had already come back so we were in and out of the shade with the baby, but the boys were tough.
Ryan was having nothing to do with pictures!
Hooray for parades that still throw candy!
Andrew guarding his ears…our little sound sensitive child!
Talk about having it made in the shade…Daddy fanning Lily.
Everyone got a little too hot, so it was back home we went…
Andrew wanted me to fix his dinner, like, yesterday, so he fed Lily for me…for the first time. So precious!
You see, he wanted to hurry and go outside where our neighbors/friends were setting off some fireworks!
I absolutely love this picture… it is sooo them…Ethan/Owen? (twins) on the left, our Andrew, and Ethan (twins) but I can tell them apart, from next door!
Ryan is always the oldest…but he’s so patient!
I didn’t get any cool pics of the show, Miss Katie was the official photographer of the evening…check her out on my blog list “The Harris Boys”
We had a nice, chill day celebrating the free country we live in…which makes me think.
This country truly was given its blessing from God because it was founded by those that wanted the freedom to worship him properly! They followed His Word and were a simple people. Even as the colonies became more “civilized” and wanted freedom, they wrote a Declaration that we were indeed created and under God!
Fast forward 200+ years and our country is crumbling.
Many fight not to follow Him, many think those of us that do are simple and uneducated to believe in His Truth. But are we truly simple and misled? I think NOT! He knew this would happen and He knew the attitude some would have towards Him.
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.”
1 Corinthians 3:19
“Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man…”
Do we really need to question WHY our country is in such decline?
We ALL have the free will to decide…to be a fool in man or wise in HIM!
