This blog is looking for wisdom, to have and to share. it is also looking for other rare character traits like good humor, courage, and honor. It is not an easy road, because all of us fall short. But God is love, forgiveness and grace. Those who believe in Him and repent of their sins have the promise of His Holy Spirit to guide us and show us the Way.

Happy Freedom Day!
The Independence Eve celebration in downtown Denver was definitely worth the trip. Thousands of people gathered to watch and listen to the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and a few fireworks. When the orchestra played the 1812 Overture, the buildings lit up and fireworks exploded in the sky. The color guard presented the flags as the performance began with the Star Spangled Banner. Of course, the kids and I were in the front row right next to the orchestra. No self-respecting blogger would settle for less, especially when it is a free event! The tunes? My favorite was Born inthe USA, although I am not too sure how many of the crowd were actually born in the USA. It is a song that encourages one to belt out at the top of one's lungs, which I did, happily.
The skies here are full of smoke. There is a state-wide fireworks ban, as new wildfires are raging in the mountains.
