Freedom’s Fireworks for July—Part III

As we celebrate freedom this month, I’ve talked about things to be free from something. Now, I want to shift that focus to freedom to. Back in the 60s, the Beatles had many songs about “love.” But that’s not what I’m going to be talking about. Yes, we need love, but we need to be free to love. The Bible says, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” #FreedomsFireworks4July #donnalhsmith #IndependenceDayJuly4 #Free2Love

June Blooms — Part II

Recently, I visited the Biltmore Estate outside Asheville, North Carolina. The rose garden was in full bloom and stunningly beautiful. So, I’m posting a few photos from that excursion. You’ll notice different colors of roses, but they are all part of the rose family. Just as we are all part of the human family. There’s a timing to when roses bloom, and there’s a timing for our lives to bloom, too. #JuneBlooms #SeasonShift #GodsTiming4YourLife
