The Joy of the Day





















Dear Lord Scott,

    I just wanted to thank you for hosting the picnic in Prescott! It was such a wonderful afternoon, everything about it was splendid. I enjoyed the company as well as the games, which supplied many laughs, as well as a bonk on the head. :D  Picnics are one of the more adventurous activities you can convince your friends to join you in, unfortunately not many people are willing to do the organizational part of them, so thank you for providing one for all of us to enjoy! I've been trying to decide if I enjoy the periodic balls or picnics more, and I have to tell you I'm having a hard time because they are both so enjoyable, its hard to place one superior to the other. I hope that you will be having several more picnics in the future, as I will jump at the opportunity to attend them. Thank you so much for all the energy and enthusiasm you put behind these lovely outings, they will long last in my memory.

Dear Lord Scott,

Thank you for all of the hard work you and your wife put into these wonderful, educational get-togethers. My friends and I have a wonderful time and made lasting memories.  It is wonderful meeting new people and growing relationships with others.  May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.

Dear Lord and Lady Scott,

I so enjoyed the picnic, as did my grandmother.  I am so glad she was able to come.  And the Lord did bless us with such a beautiful day for it!  Thank you for all you do to plan and host these functions!  I so appreciate your standards and your heart to serve families in a Christlike way!

I enjoyed all of the activities of the day, and the chance to meet and visit with the other people in attendance.

What a delight it was, too, to become more acquainted with your family!  You have a genuine quality that is hard to find these days.  Your children are very fortunate to be raised with the Christ-centered standards that you possess in such a world as we live in.  They are delightful children!  Please greet them for me.

I look forward to the next We Make History gathering!

Together with you in His body and service...

Part of the object of our picnic was to remember and discuss the 230th Anniversary of the beginning of the American Revolution.

History Lesson: Lexington, Concord & Basic Freedoms

April 19th, 1775 will be the 230th anniversary of the beginning of the American Revolution. On that day in 1775, immediately subsequent to the "midnight ride" of Paul Revere and a night of marching by British troops, the first battles of the American Revolution were fought at and around Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts.
But why were Americans willing to assemble and fight then and there? It is surprising how few of their latter day countrymen know the answer to this question in 2005.
The British Army had two objectives on that fateful day. The first was to march to Lexington and surprise and arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock for their vocal criticisms of British policy. The second objective was to march on to Concord and seize arms and ammunition which belonged to the citizens. Whatever other causes (and there were many) which may have helped to lead up to the Revolution, Americans fought that day for freedom of speech and for the right to bear arms. It should be no surprise then that after Independence was won these two freedoms were included in the "Bill of Rights" of the United States Constitution.
Remember these freedoms next time you see peaceful protesters (whether you agree with their viewpoint or not) and when you hear of citizens in the border region concerned about defending their homes and communities (again whether you agree with their viewpoint or not).
