God Bless America....America Honor God!!!

Psalm 33:11-22
The counsel of the LORD stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
The LORD looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works.

No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.
Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You. Posted by Picasa

I know I usually only put pictures up of the celebrated person on their special day, but since this was also independence Day and I thought this photo looked neat I'm sticking it in here! John has always seemed to show more of the Learned side in him, in resemblance and actions so I thought this picture was rather interesting since grandpa Learned is in the background. Can you see the similarities? Posted by Picasa

This year, Faith decided to break a couple of our traditions by having chicken and veggie Kabobs instead of hotdogs, and blueberry cobbler and strawberry glacé pie instead of our usual cake! What a delicious difference they made to our celebration! Posted by Picasa

Aunty Carmen! (mom's twin) Posted by Picasa

The gifts that were given to Faith included three of her favorite music or vocal CDs, Tatting supplies, a butterfly net and identification book, 'vintage' stickers, and a patriotic shirt from Aunt Carmen. Oh yes, and she also received (a few days earlier) a beautiful handmade set of red, white and blue place mats and napkins from her dear friend Theresa! Posted by Picasa

July 4th...Evening at Elizabeth Park

In the evening, after all the relatives had headed home, we drove over to Elizabeth Park for some fishing (for the boys) and an enjoyable nature walk (for the ladies) and of course I took my camera! Here is a glimpse of that beautiful evening that God blessed us with and the glorious nature that He has made for our enjoyment. Enjoy!

The Mighty One, God the LORD,
Has spoken and called the earth
From the rising of the sun to its going down.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God will shine forth.

Exalt the LORD our God,And worship at His holy hill;
For the LORD our God is holy.
Psalm 99:9

We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks!
For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near.
Psalm 75:1

Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him, all the earth.
Psalm 96:9
