Independence Day

Woke up early today and went surfing.  No, not California (I wish), the Internet.  Had such a wonderful weekend celebrating our nation's independence.  Colleen and I volunteered to work at the City of Mesa "Celebration of Freedom".  We manned a jump booth.  We met lots of kids and had a great time.  This is Jessica Allen taking a picture of her little girl.

The fireworks were outstanding.

Went to Facebook and saw David & Nancy French.  That led me to last year's 4th of July video.  If you don't realize it, I'm a big fan of the Frenches.  They are an outstanding example of latter-day saints (especially for Presbyterians).

I was feeling inspired.  When I ran across this video , I just had to share it.  Everyone has seen it, but it's a great reminder that we all have great potential.  We are all children of a Heavenly Father who loves us.  He let us come to this earth so we could become more like him.  The trials and tribulations are for our benefit, " all these things shall give theeeexperience, and shall be for thy good".

Have a great Independence Day!
