As I heard the rumbling, I was reminded that in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Paul wrote, "In everything give thanks for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." Even when all your plans have to be changed and the sky looks bleak, no matter what the situation, we are to give thanks to the Lord. I recently read a commentary on this verse and the writer stated that thanking God in everything is the essence of Christian living and attitude. Thankfulness glorifies God and creates within us a heart of gratitude. I want a heart of gratitude and thanksgiving! I hope you do too.
We were definitely thankful for the rain that came and adjusted our plans by moving all the dining tables inside. It is really nice have three, big guys to do all the hauling!

Jon, Dawson's dad, is about to launch my niece Sarah Beth through the air. Oh, the joys of childhood. Do you remember the thrill of being tossed in the air? Sarah Beth loves Jon!
I hope that all of you had a terrific July 4th holiday and more importantly, made lots of memories!
Thanks for dropping by and many blessings!
