Happy 4th of July!
We are living in the greatest country in the world! Do we have problems? Of course we do. But we are one nation, under God, and we are so blessed. It is my prayer today, as we celebrate this great American holiday, that we all stop for a moment and give thanks to the One who makes it all possible. With Him, we can do anything.
My gift to you today is a picture story of some of my favorite moments on the island so far this season. Enjoy, have a wonderful weekend, and – good Lord willing – I will see you back here again Monday morning. God bless.
First day on the island in May - first trip up the hill. Would you believe it is Jeanine driving us? How funny is that!
