Happy 4th of July

This is a 4th I will truly never forget!

Our church held a 24 hour prayer vigil to pray for our country and our first most cherished liberty, which is our religious freedom.
Our youth group participated in the vigil by spending the night in the church hall and going into the church to pray and spend time with Jesus intermittently. 
Isabel spent the night and I made it until 4:40 AM, when my tired old body headed for home for a longish nap and I returned for the morning mass. I applaud the moms who stayed all night, and the ones who did early morning 3:30 to 6:30 am shifts.
When I arrived this morning-still quite bleary eyed-the kids were energized and joyfully cleaning up the hall. 
They were filled with the spirit! 
 It was wonderful to see.

I know you will all agree that we LOVE our country, and cherish everything she stands for and is founded on!
So proud to be an American mom today!

And after another nap, suprisingly, I feel pretty good!
Bring on the BBQ and fireworks, I'm ready to celebrate,
thankful for this wonderful country we call home!
