One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"Jesus said, 'If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed'" (John 8:36).

After a wonderful/exciting/adventurous week visiting our nation's capital, I am truly reminded of our blessing of freedom. I am so thankful that we live in a free country, but also that through the blood of Christ Jesus, I have been set free!

Continuing to give thanks and reflecting on our recent trip...

Great pics. Anna. It really looks like you had such a nice family vacation. I applaud you for doing so much in and around the city. I got the photos you sent via email and I love them all.
