Fourth of July in the Backyard

This July Fourth, we had a very low-key celebration which included the reading of the Declaration of Independence and the firing off of fire crackers and fireworks in the backyard (one of the unique luxuries of living in the country).

The day ended and the evening began with a spectacular display of God’ handiwork in the form of one of the more unusual and beautiful sunsets I’ve seen since Arizona. Images below depict some of the backyard ballistics that were going on.

God creates a display of His own

Not too shabby for home fireworks!
