Best Parade Ever

Jacob drove PaPa's 4-wheeler this year.

"We miss you Daddy!"

If you were not in our neighborhood this year, you missed the best parade anywhere-at least that's what Jenna said! Every year our neighborhood has a "4th of July Tractor Parade" with tractors, horses, 4 wheelers, even golf carts! It really is fun. This year me, Jenna, and Jared rode in the back of PaPa's truck. It's fun watching how everyone decorates their stuff. HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

Paul Harvey's On Air PRAYER!

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your
forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word
says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have
exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness
and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We
have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to
discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called
it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and
called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of
our forefathers and called it Enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our
hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. In Jesus' name,
we pray, Amen!" (Amen)

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio
program, "The Rest of the Story," and received a larger response to this
program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this
prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that
we again can be called "one Nation under God."
