“Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”

Happy Independence Day!!

John Adams said that today "will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."

Never take our liberty for granted.....it is on the edge of being taken away from us again.


  1. Happy 4th of July to you, too!! :)

  2. Take it back - Its ours anyway.
    Neat flag pics! I would love some gnarly ones of me if you get a chance!

  3. Lisa, I love those Photoshops! You are becoming a great photographer! Have a great day!

  4. Um, do you realize you spelled the title wrong? Did you mean, "Independence"?

  5. Very neat photos Lisa! Read Psalm 37 this morning and was so encouraged! Love the fact that even though there are evil doers....God tells me to Trust Him and do good! Thanks for posting! You are doing a great job.....keep it up!

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Justin - it was hard to figure out how to do that, but once I figured it out, I red-white-and-blued like a thousand pictures :) It is fun!! Thanks for the encouragement!

    David - *bbiigg sigh* Do you know what? I think every time I wrote "Independence" yesterday, I spelled it wrong. Frustrating. I really do know how to spell.....

  7. (Hi, Lisa! I'm just here to be a pest. ;) Just wondered if you'd be interested in adding a section to the committee story on my blog? http://perryelisabeth.blogspot.com/2012/06/everyone-together-now.html)
    Oh, and did I mention--cool pics!! :D

  8. Happy Independence Day! (Though I am late) ;)
    Very neat pictures, and great quote :) I am afraid that our country is on the verge of being taken over. And I say let us take it back quickly before we lose it!
