Our 4th of July Celebration!

This year for the 4th of July, my mother-in-law (who happens to be a Canadian) :) had a celebration for her two American daughter-in-laws. :) I thought I'd share a few pictures of the things she made to make the day special. She really put a lot of thought, time and effort into it; it was super sweet of her!! 

Mom painted the pot and planted these pretty flowers as a gift for me, she also made one for my sister-in-law. :) 

Watching Grandma finish cooking lunch. :) 

She also made these hair bows for the little girls. :)

She made very cute crayon art shirts for the four oldest little girl cousins. :) 

Red, white and blue candles.

Enjoying lunch! We had yummy chicken salad, garlic bread and sweet tea. For dessert there was...

Red, white, and blue star shaped jello :)

Strawberries dipped in white chocolate with blue sprinkles, and also blueberry cheesecake. Yum!

Festive streamers. These two little cousins are best of friends! :) 

We had a fun day! Happy (very late) 4th of July to my fellow Americans!!

Crown Him With Many Crowns

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."   Rev. 4:11


Crown Him With Many Crowns
the Lamb upon his throne, 
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns 
all music but its own. 
Awake, my soul, and sing 
of him who died for thee, 
and hail him as thy matchless King 
through all eternity. 

Crown him the Lord of life, 
who triumphed o'er the grave, 
and rose victorious in the strife 
for those he came to save. 
His glories now we sing, 
who died, and rose on high, 
who died, eternal life to bring, 
and lives that death may die. 

Crown him the Lord of peace, 
whose power a scepter sways 
from pole to pole, that wars may cease, 
and all be prayer and praise. 
His reign shall know no end, 
and round his pierced feet 
fair flowers of paradise extend 
their fragrance ever sweet. 

Crown him the Lord of love; 
behold his hands and side, 
those wounds, yet visible above, 
in beauty glorified. 
All hail, Redeemer, hail! 
For thou hast died for me; 
thy praise and glory shall not fail 
throughout eternity.
