What a time we had last night!
Friends invited us to their home for a private firework display. We go there every year and they are very safety cautious. With that being said, let me just say that fireworks can be dangerous, even under the safest of conditions.
We all gathered for a perfect evening, on blankets and chairs watching the beautiful display of color against the dark sky.... God Bless America playing in the background.
Thank God for the 'change in proceedure' this year and the prayer that was said at the beginning of the evening. I believe God was there... watching over our little ones... watching over us, as a Firework Display went wrong and crates of fireworks began going off and shooting in all directions. It was like a scene out of a movie as we all started running away as fast as we could.
Thank you God, for keeping us safe.
Nobody was hurt. Lessons were learned. God covered us with His protection.
Afterwards, the kids settled down and played on the dark grassy hillside as the adults tried to settle themselves down and determine what went wrong.
I don't know if I will ever care to see another firework display after last night! Ugh!
I hope everyone has a very happy and SAFE FOURTH!
The following video is not of our experience... but it is very similar to what we experienced last night.
