This one's for you, Paul... :)

I would like to dedicate this picture post to my friend, Pastor Paul Grabill, senior pastor of State College Assembly of God and Assistant Superintendent of the Penn-Del District of the AG.

After lunch yesterday, we were walking through a party store to get some supplies for a church event and Larry found a huge display that they had set up for July 4th parties and excitedly called over to me and said, "Deanna, you've got to come take a photo with this stuff, just for Paul Grabill!!!" So, I happily obliged while the staff members with us were in stitches laughing and setting up this impromptu little photo shoot that Larry was convinced would be such a blessing (?) for Paul. Anyone who has read his blog for more than a few posts knows that we spar often on issues such as patriotism, the flag, the military, capital punishment, war etc. however for all the debating we do on these many sensitive subjects, I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. He is an integral man, a caring pastor and an interesting blogger.

Anybody planning a 4th of July party? I know where you can get everything from patriotic toothpicks to hula hoops at a great price.

lol!!! I thought that might be your reaction, Paul. I am still laughing and apparently so is Ruth since she's told me several times today.

The staff also suggested that I make this my profile picture on my blog for a bit so that when I post comments on your blog, my "America" photo will be there to remind you of my devotion (?). As if you needed a reminder...
