Happy 4th!

Sr. Susan and I went to the Park way in advance of the concert and fireworks to get a good place. We did! More fireworks tonight!
Today we are reminded that our nation is built on the conviction that "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" are unalienable rights given to us by God. When the Bible asks, "What can bring us happiness?" It doesn't answer the question with something we can do. It answers with a prayer, which you could say is the Bible's prayer for happiness (and a good one for our nation today): "Let the light of your face shine on us, Lord."

What an explosive backdrop for two dynamite Daughters of St. Paul. Happy 4th of July, and Happy 110th birthday to Maman.

You look great! That's a good picture of you, did you send your mom a copy?

And how's your back? I've been meaning to ask if my candles in Spain did you any good.

Happy 4th!
