Happy Birthday, America!
And Happy Fourth of July to YOU!
Whether in or out of the Sandwich Generation, I pray y'all have a fun and safe day, a day of family, friends, food, and fireworks.
Or perhaps a lovely and peaceful day at home with fun memories and funny movies.
And don't forget the birthday gifts. The best gifts we can give our nation? Plenty of prayer.
I do love the way the Message Bible puts 1 Timothy 2:1b-3, don't you?
Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.
And, of course, another grand gift – teaching our grandkids how important it is to pray for our leaders!
It's always fun to teach an important truth coupled with a fun coloring project, don't you think?
Happy Fourth of July to multigenerational caregivers and grandparents
