Happy Fourth of July, friends!
We'll be parade-watching, hamburger-eating, and water gun-shooting this weekend with friends and family. We'll swim and socialize. We'll recognize how blessed we are to live in this country during this time. We'll remember that even when life doesn't make sense we have a hope that comes because of the earthly freedom soldiers secure and the eternal hope Christ gives.
If you're looking for some patriotic encouragement, my favorite bloggers that offer such are Beth Stiff at Simply Beth and Kristen Strong at Chasing Blue Skies. They're both military wives who share real-life stories and offer hope.
How will you celebrate your freedom?
