A wonderful and colorful holiday is approaching.
This is a time traditionally spent with family and loved ones. The sounds of laughter and food cooking on grill will the air. Followed by the ever famous smell of hot dogs, steaks and corn basking from the flames. The night sky will illuminate with colors, starts and streams of smoke which delight hearts of all ages.
What a blessed holiday indeed.
Summer is a time of growth and prosperity in the fields. I am talking both fields of crops and the fields where teams gather to hit a ball and run the bases.
The spirit of this country rises to a new pitch during these summer months. I pray that we will all take a moment to remember all of those who have gone before us to defend freedom. Celebrate and thank all of our veterans and the men and women currently serving in the armed forces to defend our freedoms.
Newspaper headlines, radio and television shows may remind us of all the tragedy in the world but the human spirit gravitates towards the goodness in the world.
It is all around.
I am grateful for so much and invite you to join in the Celebration of Spirit and Faith this holiday season!
May the greatest fireworks be the ones in your heart bursting forth in gratitude for all that we have.
God Bless America &
Happy Independence Day!
