4th of July recap {part 2 of 2}

 A bbbbbbbbbeautiful night by the lake.
Gonna watch Fireworks. 
eat my chocolate covered pretzels.
ya know-live the life.


 I was surrounded by many people that love me & I love them. 
I am so thankful for the camera
What a wonderful invention.
To capture a moment in time.
so when we look back
we can relive that very moment


 see how tired we all looked at the end of the day, but knowing we were having too much fun to notice. 
 to be IN FRONT of the camera for once.... & really.... just having so much fun being with friends & family. 
to be blessed with a sister that is home for the summer.


 My heart wouldn't be complete without my Libby or Rachel. Sisters are such a gift from God. 
{rachel was at home with her babies}
 Looking over the Lake you just realize HOW BIG our God is. How WIDE AND DEEP his love for us is...... 
I am reminded in Matthew 6:
{message}
"If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers..... don't you think He'll attend to you...? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to RELAX,  to not be so preoccupied with GETTING, so you can respond to God's giving. "


I may not be out of this trial completely...... but I am the happiest I have ever been. I am finding JOY in each moment. I am seeing things before that I have never even NOTICED. I am beginning to see that LIFE IS ABOUT the small things in life.... the little things in life add to something so much bigger. 


It's like a beautiful Mosaic piece of art. Something so special about the little things in life....becoming a piece of ART on your wall. 

So when your friends come over... you can look at it and say.... "That's the time I was going through this trial, but GOD gave me JOY.... that passes all understanding.... & peace that passes all knowledge." 


You see.... I am taking more pictures than I ever have this summer. WHY?

Doing just that....... putting a MOSAIC piece of art together..... SO I can REMEMBER.

REMEMBER what GOD has done for me this SUMMER.

Turning my family into a beautiful piece of MOSAIC ART. 




Happy Thursday y'all! 
Enjoy your family.
