Summer is a season of celebration in our family, as 3 out of us5 have birthdays,
and then of course, our home nation celebrates its birthday too!

These celebrations are mile markers; reminders to look back with thanksgiving, grateful to the God of life, the One Who gives each breath, each smile! And reminders to look forward with hope, to trust Him for the year ahead, full of unknowns, and full of opportunities to see His hand at work, faithful as the years are long!
