Today is Independence Day, and I’m torn. We have been invited to a party, one we’ve been to in the past. This party is attended by many of our church family members, so there’s lots of food, fun, and fellowship going on!
What I’m torn about is that a day at home sounds soooo good! I have a brisket to cook if we stay home, and Gen made a luscious coconut cream pie for dessert! (Well, I can’t have any pie, since I’m dieting, but I also have a little watermelon that I am allowed to have!)
I know Bill is torn – he has a new workshop here at Mama’s, and has been loving it! He brought a bunch of stuff over here from our house, and doing what he does best – make something from a bunch of nothing! He’s already finished one generator (it’s hurricane season here, you know) and has others to piece together as well. On the other hand, there will be hundreds of photo ops at the party, including a fireworks display (if the burn ban hasn’t precluded that!)
I think Dannye Reigh may be torn, as well. She always loves a good game of volleyball, and church fellowship is always sweet. But we are having a 4th of July celebration at church on Sunday, and again, a day at home can sure be good, especially after a busy week!
Our church calls this holiday “Dependence on God Day”. We are reminded that we are nothing apart from God’s grace. Often, our Children’s Choir gives a program, and there is always a lot of special, patriotic music during our services. I’m not sure what we have in store for us this Sunday, but I know the Lord will be glorified.
So back to my decision – what to do, what to do?!?!
Well, I will let you know later what I decided!
