Happy 4th!

We're celebrating the day with lots of great food (of course) and great company. I hope all of you have a very happy--and safe--holiday!

A few days ago, I woke up singing a sweet song I loved when I was in college . . . and still love today. We are so blessed in how we live--so rich in comparison to most of the world. On days like this, as I look at all the American flags waving in our little town, I thank God for the gift of being an American and living at this unique time, and in this unique place, in the history of the World.

Perspective . . . life is all about perspective. One person's glass is half empty--the other person's glass is half full.

Songs like this keep my eyes focused on the eternal perspective:

Why have you chosen me
out of millions your child to be?
You know all the wrong that I've done;
And how could you pardon me,
forgive my iniquity
To save me give Jesus your Son?

I am amazed to know
that a God so great
could love me so,
is willing and wanting
to forgive;
His grace is so marvelous
His mercy miraculous--
I can't understand it,
I confess.

Lord, Help me be
what you want me to be,
Your Word I will strive to obey;
My life I now give,
for you I will live,
and walk by your side
all the way.*
