Independence Day//Break from Blogging

Happy Independence Day to all my blog readers! I hope your day is filled with family, friends, fun, feasting, and fireworks, as we celebrate the freedom we have and those who have given their "lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor" in procuring it.

"O say can you see, by the dawn's early light?
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare. The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say does that Star-Spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
-Francis Scott Key 

Also, today will be my last post for awhile. I'm heading down to El Paso tomorrow morning to spend a couple of weeks with Bearing Precious Seed. Back to the land of big-brown eyes, breathtaking sunsets, and people hungry for the Gospel. Your prayers are appreciated.

"May His beauty rest upon us as we seek the lost to win,
And may they forget the channel seeing only Him."
-Kate Wilkinson
