Happy Fourth of July

Photobucket


Today was a very lovely day. I first of all got to meet with the prayer team from our church where we met to discuss the new prayer initiative and continue planning our prayer chapel. Then we prayed quite soaking prayers over the church, community, nation, and world.

We celebrated the fourth here just the two of us eating our leisure breakfast on the porch. Lynn had stayed home this morning and had boiled eggs, sausage patties, and English muffins along with individual dishes of cut up strawberries with bananas and a delicious slice of banana nut bread. We chatted about our summer plans over our coffee and it was a beautiful morning at home.

This afternoon Dottie and Bill picked us up and drove us to our local tea party. It was my first, but certainly not my last!
We estimated approximately 1500 people turned out with their red, white, and blue and posters covering many issues.

The speakers were empassioned, informed, and inspiring!

Some demonstrated more disdain than others...

Some like Lynn and Bill enjoyed the information booths where they picked up voting records of our State assemblymen. It behooves us all to get informed and become more proactive in civic affairs. Our freedoms and liberty are at stake!

  1. Happy 4th Schotzy, and you are so right. We do need to be informed when it comes to government affairs!
