Every year we cap off our 4th of July holiday with a walk to our neighborhood bayou to watch Lakeside Country Club's fireworks display. We spread out a blanket, lather ourselves with bug repellent and wait for the lights in the sky. Would it happen this year with Rob's pain and fatigue? If so, would it be the last time we would hold hands under the stars on the fourth?   Thankfully, He agreed to make the trip with Bobby, Denise, Jim and me and we enjoyed the best display we have ever seen from the club.
 Just before the finale, a single heart-shaped firework engraved the night sky and my hurting heart.  A God-whisper for me? "No matter what, I love you, my child. I won't leave or forsake you."  A precious gift from God.
