4th of July 2013

Oh my goodness. I can't tell you how much of a fourth of July girl I am. It is my absolute favorite holiday.
The red- for Hardiness and valor
White - Purity and innocence
Blue - Vigilance, perseverance, and justice 

I am so blessed to be an American! "One Nation under God." *ugh!* Doesn't it make all you girls want to squeal at the title. How amazing is that? I love, love, love my Nation. I still pray for my Nation, but I will always love it. I love our strength, our History, our freedom. There is no other Nation like America.

 My Papa--always laughing with thunderous victory at the other side.
 Mr. Sturtevant too. :)

 The way girls talk-- always giggling and gossiping. ;)

 Heather and I walked up to the top of our drive when the sun started to go down and the lighting was just too good to pass up.

                                                     A good time was had.

I will end on the note of Sisterly love. I love my Sister. She is the best friend I've ever had, and ever will.


WPC Evening of the arts. 2013

Evening of the arts was more than several evenings ago, but it is brought to you once more today. As a memory. A memory that makes you smile, and wish it back again. You can't count on one hand how many talented people are in our Church. Each person is so uniquely different, displaying their own gifts and talents. I love it! I am thankful to God that we were not all made with the same talents, etc. (even though, if we were that would be the *very best* thing for us, and I'd be happy too.) But He didn't make us all the same in that way. I love the way communities work. In stead of each person individually keeping and nurturing their own gifts, they share and contribute to the whole body. Filling the body with almost everything you would need. Artists, bakers, cooks, musicians, electricians, landscapers, plumbers, constructors, engineers, and the works! Making the body whole.
Evening of the Arts was always a cherished -looking forward to- moment for me.
Here are a few snap shots of what I enjoyed in the year 2013.
