This post is meant to highlight 2 things: the 4th of July fireworks and the way I style a shelf.
Addressing the real explosion first- Andrew brought the kids and brother Jonny to see the Brainerd fireworks. In the past it's been a tradition for us to meet extended family at the football field at dusk to hear live music and watch the light show. This year there was road construction going on around the high school, so the new detonation site was the old city golf course right behind Target. My dear show-goers reported that the location wasn't as exciting, but still awe-inspiring. The grand finale was accentuated by the thrill of tornado sirens screeching in the background! Oh my, it was quite the storm. Margot and I were at home getting cozied up in the basement for the night (don't you wish you were a baby sometimes, to not know of the chaos and worry going on around you? That seems obvious, sheesh. I mean, I try to remember Who is in control and I know that nothing touches me that hasn't been sifted through His fingers- praise Jesus!- but there are many times when I wouldn't mind the blissfulness of ignorance.:))
