When you get born here.

Hope you and your family had a lovely 4th of July. Here are some scenes from our day.

We had a day full of the pool, food (so much food), friends, more food, and then fireworks. Mike and I closed the day out by listening to one of my favorite songs about America, one that wasn’t played at the pool (please note: Celine Dion singing “God Bless America” is not an appropriate song for the pool. Neither is “America” by Simon and Garfunkel. Just because it has the word America in the title does not mean it’s an appropriate choice): “Land of My Sojourn” by Rich Mullins. He gets it right, that love of what we have and the longing for what is yet to come.

Nobody tells you when you get born here
How much you’ll come to love it
And how you’ll never belong here
So I call you my country
And I’ll be lonely for my home
And I wish that I could take you there with me
-Rich Mullins
