Happy Fourth Of July
Happy fourth of July this is going to be a great year! These past years have been great and I thank God for each day He has given me. I always enjoy the fourth of July but this year it falls on a Tuesday which makes it kind of strange. It seems like more fun on the weekend but this year even though it is on Tuesday we are still going to have a great day.
I always enjoy the month of July because my birthday falls in that month but as I grow older I can appreciate things better. I think sometimes we take for granted the blessings that God has given us. I have been very fortunate. I have two children from my first marriage, Paul and Faith. They are both grown and off living their lives. I have four step-children, Veronica, Randall, Joshua, and Abigail. Each of them are busy raising their families. I love each of them very much. We lost Joshua in a boating accident but we still love and remember him as a big part of our family.
Then there is my wonderful wife, Kelly. I am so thankful for her and I thank God everyday that He brought her into my life. She has been a true helpmate over these past years and we have worked together to make our life fruitful and a blessing.
I hope this fourth of July you will also think about all the wonderful things you have to be thankful for because God truly has blessed us. Many times we fail to give thanks for our great county and the wonderful families God has given us. Today I give thanks for all my family and even my Aunts, Uncles, Parents, and those who have gone before us.
