Freedom

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! It was pretty low key for us. Garrett had to work earlier that day and since we don't really know anyone up here yet, it was just the two of us.
We played some basketball at the park, did a little shopping, and then that night went into Pullman,WA for a firework show.
It was so amazing. There were tons and tons and tons of people in the city park with a live band and at 10 PM they had a huge display of fireworks. Garrett and I were right beneath them. We laid in the grass facing towards the sky and just took in the beautiful display. They were so close to us, I couldn't believe it.
Sitting there with Garrett watching such beautiful fireworks in celebration of our freedom really put things into perspective for me. Things are tough right now with me not having a job, but I am very blessed. I wouldn't trade my life for anything. Not only do we live in a free country, but we are free from sin and death by the power of Christ...can't get any sweeter than that.
