Happy Memorial Day!

730- Today I am thankful for salvation & a hope after death. This thankfulness is always in my heart but especially true after hearing of a loved one's sudden passing. It is completely unreal and our hearts ache for their family, but she is done with the cares and trials of Earth...she is in Heaven, at peace, at rest, in bliss... oh let your mind wander, and be excited for our reunion with our Heavenly Father!

The Coming of the Lord-13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. I Thessalonians 4:12-14 ESV Bible

731- Thankful that Hannah is healthy. 3 Memorial day's ago, we were at PCH in the ER trying to discover what was plaguing her near life less body.

732- Thankful for amazing, encouraging friends
733- Thankful for a friend filled weekend with  grad party, hymn sing & BBQ.... way to kick off the official start to summer, although school is still in session - so this may be the unofficial start to summer ;) If we were in AZ, our schooling would be finito!!! Butttttt.... we arent :)

734- Chicago. We love this city!! I love that Hannah knows the skyline, as soon as we spot it on the highway, she's like THE CITY! Yay for her love of all things hustle and bustle-y like mama ;)
We ate at Eataly on Saturday... super fun gourmet Italian food- not kid friendly, but we made it work :)

735- Thankful for a random park morning... Hannah met a couple new friends, and I met a couple new moms. So fun!

736- Thankful for family outings... Harrison's dream date of fishing came true today. We thanked the Lord that he allowed Harrison to catch 7 fish in literally 10 minutes.  In those 10 minutes, the shrieks from Hannah were many. Worms and fish are apparently quite scary!? ;) We came, we fished, we gutted (the fish), we left in 30 minutes. We all were V.E.R.Y happy :) Harrison was in awe that I actually touched a fish... and almost kissed him... NOT ;)


737- Thankful for Dustin's cleaning skills :) It was awesome to come home to a fully vacuumed & swiffer-ed house before our hymn sing
738-Thankful for teens who are living for God

739- Thankful for Hannah's friend Raegan
740- Thankful for Memorial Day, and the time to formally remember those who have fought for our freedom. So so thankful for their sacrifice for our freedom.

There is greater freedom even than country freedom- freedom from sins! Love the verse that our 1st VBS in AZ was centered around- If the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed!

Enjoy the USA and our amazing freedoms
Enjoy Christ's freedom too!
