This July...

Well, July has flown by so quickly! So far I have an A in one class and I have to take my final this week in the other , yikes!! I hope it goes well. We have had our friends the Jonses over for a couple days and that was fun. Anton ran a race and then on my dad's birthday we went to the water park it was really fun.

The 4th of July

Happy Fourth of July. I want to thank all or our soldiers for their sacrifices for our freedoms. I don't know if you hear this that often but thank you from the bottom of my heart. I also want to thank all the guys I know that have joined the military: Alex, Steven, Tim, Nathanael, JT, Brent, Nick, Jake, Nick, and Clayton. Thank you guys so much for your willingness to serve. Have a great holiday everyone.

The bombs busting in air...

Tomorrow is the 4th of July, a holiday celebrated with beautiful fireworks and lots of food. But what do those lovely, bright, and even dazzeling lights in the sky represent? What do our soldiers think of and feel when they hear the explosions and see the bright flashes? Is is fun? or does it call up haunting memories and maybe even fears? I have know idea what the men and women who fought, and currently fight for our freedoms in this country have dealt with and seen nor do I think that I would be able to stand it if I did. My heart aches for them for what they have been though. I cannot make that fact of war go way, but I can remind others of what tomorrow means. The 4th of July is a wonderful celebration of the freedoms we have in the USA, but don't let it be just another day that you don't have to work or study for school. Remember what freedom cost (a lot) and that all those lovely fireworks are pictures to remind us of the bombs and the sounds of the battles that were, and are being, fought to keep this nation free. And tell those who have been through the real battles that you are thankful and you support them. God bless our soldiers.

I cannot believe that is is already July. June just seemed to fly past and now summer is almost over (I know most of you don't want to think about that :) School is going well and I am getting the hang of the internet classes. Some of the assignments are hard but I am getting through it :) Now I need to figure out my fall schedule. Have a great week.


I heard once that loneliness is God calling to your heart and telling you to turn to him.
