Can't wait to get my hands on some of my own family photos.
Here are a few images from my first July 4th in Olympia, Washington.
It was quite a beautiful site to see.
In many ways I think it could be an excellent challenge: How can we protect the honor of our country?
While I do believe Jesus died for our sins, and rose again to bring us restoration and healing, I associate these signs with picketers and anger.
Albeit, the young lady who was holding this sign was quite calm, and while I didn't talk with her, she looked quite pleasant from afar.
It was such a blessing to meet them, and serve beside them.
Maybe next year I'll commit and bring a tripod.
But sometimes it's nice to simply enjoy the show.
Like this man who instead of watching the show was using his phone.
...Which was just like me, using my camera, instead of just enjoying the show with my eyes.
"Hello Mr. Pot, my name is Ms. Kettle."
Or the photo below, as soon as the show was over, all the devices were pulled out. Must check all the places!
