In case you're wondering if we've vanished once again, we are still alive and well -- and enjoying a week of being at home. As the banner above indicates, most of our days are being filled with preparations for the July 3-4th musical! It's been exciting to see the Lord bringing so many details together.

Much of our work this week has not been of the 'photo-taking' type...designing posters and advertisements, revising scripts, ordering wigs, hats, buttons and fabric, and finishing the soundtracks and musical arrangements.

With our dear friends from Omaha diligently sewing Constitutional Statesmen costumes, progress is being made day by day! (Many thanks to Anna, Alatheia, and Angela!)

We'd appreciate your prayers for this coming week. Due to various factors, we've decided to sew all the British Redcoats -- in the few days we have left before leaving for North Dakota camp the end of next week. Hopefully our fabric and trim will arrive on time so we have couple days to work on the project! We'll look forward to posting pictures of yet another 'sewing party'! [smile]

And so project continues forward. As we reflect on the changes taking place in our country and culture -- and then read of the conviction and godliness of our forefathers; of their vision for this country -- we labor with passion. Thank you, again, for your prayers! We're looking forward to sharing more in the coming days...

Let us be cautious of the notion that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can continue after the removal of religious principle. It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”

George Washington's Quote...I've been hearing that quite a bit lately! At the morning...and afternoon, too. Can you guess why? It is spoken with a heart of passion, too. It's so nice to get to memorize lines with so much depth, meaning and truth!
