Happy Independence Day!

As we have served in two foreign countries, few things make us more homesick than not being home for the Fourth of July.  Our wonderful country is certainly not as great as it once was, and has its flaws; but it is still the best, most blessed country, and we are proud to be Americans. 

Even if this country (England)  does have Grand Estates 
("Pemberley" in the 2005 "Pride and Prejudice)

 And amazing old country churches in every little village
(Most of which are now restaurants or nightclubs)
 And royalty

 And the most incredible countryside

And we get to be here as missionaries

There's still no place like America - the land prepared by Heavenly Father to be the birthplace of the Restoration!

  1. I love this! I can't believe it's this Tuesday and I haven't gotten enough of a patriotic fix yet. Thanks for all of the fun patriotic traditions we had growing up!
