Happy Fourth of July, friends! I am enjoying the day relaxing by the pool (if the sun ever comes out!) and cleaning up around our house; Aaron is on set in “Sudan,” or the clay pits of South Georgia, so we will be postponing our celebration until tomorrow when he finishes D2 cycle!

Thinking of our family and friends this weekend across these beautiful lands. We love you and wish we were closer. May today be a reminder of the gifts we’ve been given and a celebration of these gifts, and in the midst of our celebration, for all who believe, a remembrance of our allegiance to the one True King and Kingdom.
“In him [Christ] and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.” – Eph. 3:12.
