Favorite Holiday

This weekend is the Independance day, my favorite holiday! And this one is especially special :) becuase my family is having an all family reunion the whole weekend <3 I've always loved the fourth of July, everyone gets together in one place to eat good food, go swimming, play games, and watch fireworks. It's warm and sunny, and there's always tons of laughter in the breeze.

Another reason I love the fourth of July is becuase it's a time to sit back and reflect on the beginning of our country. This weekend would be a great time to maybe go online and review our declaration of independance, maybe go back through our history books and read the stories of the soldiers who suffered to make this country happen. It really is an amazing story. All odds were against us. To me that is evidence enough that God was watching over our early leaders and citizens.

The fourth of July is not just another day to celebrate. It is the celebration of the anneversary of our independance as a country, as a people, and as a new idea.
