“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”
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!
