July 4th – We had a great time celebrating the independence of our beloved nation. Both sisters, daughter Kristie and her family, niece Kara and a friend of hers enjoyed the best barbeque chicken I’ve ever had -and I’ve tried plenty. Son-in-law Franz prepared and cooked them and they were ‘larapin’ -which is a whole notch better than delicious! As Ron Hudson would say “they’d make you lips go flippity flop!”
July 5th – Daughter-in-law Wendy just called to say that they are at the Portland, OR airport where she and Nathaniel are getting ready to board a flight to Florida! It is Nathaniel’s 7th birthday and they are going to spend a week with us. They’ll leave Michael at home to feed the dog and cut the grass. Needless to say, Harriet and I are ecstatic about having all 3 of our GRANDsons here tonight!
BUT FIRST- I will have the blessed privilege of preaching God’s Wonderful Word in the Kingswood Baptist Church in Southport. Harriet and I fell in love with that congregation when we were there in January. Will miss Pastor Morris and Sue Denman. They are precious saints and good friends!
