Time to make our yearly trip to the fireworks stand, where every year you will hear the same thing:
Me- "We need just a few more"
Phil-"We have ENOUGH!"
The fireworks seem to be getting more violent or gross every year, as you can see here. There are not too many that suit little girls. Our family has many fireworks stories. When our son was little, we took him to a deserted parking lot one fourth to set off fireworks. This necessitated a visit from the local police. No ticket, but a stern speech, and a demand for I.D. In his haste to leave the scene of the crime, Phil dropped his wallet on the ground and ran over it with the car, leaving permanent tire tread marks on it. A warning for future shenanigans. Last year we set the front yard on fire, as you can see HERE. Do you have any firework stories? Here's one fire we need to keep burning.
"Do not put out the spirit's fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.
1 Thess. 5:19,22
