Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
Happy Fourth of July everyone!
It is beautiful, sunny, and a perfect day for a picnic. Remember your sunscreen, drink a lot of water,
and make memories.
I plan to spend most of the day at home reading a good book catching up on things to do,
and enjoying time with our daughter
who is home for 24 hours from college.
I shared of the following poem, Jesus on the Fourth of July, written by Marilyn Ferguson, on this morning’s podcast, click here to listen,
I encourage you to read this beautiful poem and let her know how great it is.
I included her email and if you click on the title of the poem, there is a direct link to her page.
Thank you Marilyn for sharing your gift of writing with all of us and reminding us that the Fourth of July is about so many freedoms, even greater than those we can see today.
Jesus on the 4th of July

We gather 'round to celebrate
On Independence Day
Pay homage to our country
As the children run and play.
With barbecues and picnics
And fireworks in the air
The flag we own is proudly flown
To show how much we care.
The stars and stripes spell freedom
She waves upon the breeze
While bursts of colors can be seen
Above the towering trees.
This is all quite wonderful
We revel in delight
But God above in divine love
Has brought this day to light.
With just a stroke of liberty
A touch of His great hand
He gave democracy to us
And helped this country stand.
The stripes upon our stately flag
Were touched by His sweet grace
Each star of white that shines so bright
Reflects His loving face.
So as you turn to face the flag
For battles that were fought
Be filled with pride for those who died
And freedoms that were bought.
But don't forget to thank the One
That gives the bright display
The reason why we paint the sky
On Independence Day
