A pre- July 4th celebration occurred at Sagemont Church celebrating the baptism of my mother in law, a concert by Robbie Seay Band and a beautiful fireworks display.
I honestly did not want to go. It was a Sunday night. The firework show wouldn't even begin until around 8:45pm. I am tired just thinking about it. We were leaving for a camping trip with 6 kids (3 of our own, my sisters 3 kids staying with us, 4 with the other couple) in just 2 days and I wanted kids in bed early.
I am so incredibly glad that we went. The weather was perfect, baptism service was beautiful, the fireworks were incredible, but the time of praise and worship is exactly what my tired, weary heart needed. As much fun as our summer has been up through this point, it also came with its challenges. This night was a breath of fresh air from God himself. Easily one of my favorite summer nights. Grateful for a God who knows what I need more than I do.
