What a time of celebration in our wonderful community. Fireworks, Peaches, Ice Cream, Hot Dogs!! We’ve got it all, right here at home. I hope you take advantage of all the wonderfulness that happens this month – from Fourth of July celebrations, to Peach Festival, the Peach Pedal, and live music at so many different venues. We have much to celebrate, and much to be thankful for. Please take some time to reflect on what happened to create this wonderful country of ours… teach your children about our founding fathers and what they sacrificed—their fortunes, their homes, their lives-- to ensure our freedom. Explain to your children how our military men and women put their lives on the line every day to maintain our freedom. Make time to offer up a prayer of thanks to our Heavenly Father for blessing our country, and a special prayer for our leaders from the local municipality all the way to the White House that they will have wisdom, strength of character, and unending love for our country. Be involved with your family and community, be diligent in your work, be passionate about your values, and be blessed!
