Land That I Love!

 “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life”
Romans 6:22

Barbecues…fireworks…parades…hot dogs…picnics…lemonade…concerts…home-made ice cream…grilled burgers…swimming…baseball games…family reunions…boating!   This is how we will celebrate America’s Independence Day (often referred to as the 4th of July) in little towns and big cities across our beautiful land!  Red, white, & blue will be the colors of the day, and being with the ones we love will be the highlight of our long weekend.  While it is a fitting time to celebrate the independence of our great nation, let’s be reminded of the ultimate freedom we have–in Christ!

I hope that you all enjoy the July 4th inspiration from my Pinterest board,  Summer Dreaming.  Each picture is linked to the original source!

 So many folks enjoy the water on the 4th!  A cute picnic on the pier is ideal! A timeworn potting bench is a great idea for a food station!Drink stand with patriotic details!

Red, white, and blue trifle…sweet ending to your celebration!
 This dessert kabob with strawberries, blueberries, and brownie bites is simple and delicious! Love a sugar cookie pizza with fresh fruit! This would be a crowd pleaser – red and white velvet mini cakes with buttercream frosting!  My guys would request cream cheese icing! Here is a great tip: freeze berries in ice cube trays!Red, white, and blue is always appropriate…even in a bedroom! 
 A vintage flag with 48 stars hangs in an entrance hall!  What a conversation piece!

“Our fathers’ God, to Thee, Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing; Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light; Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King”
