I was talking with a friend about how important ‘family’ is and the lack of this virtue being passed on to kids today. Over the years we have experienced family needs and have responded with love and support. For me, this is truly a God thing and one where we listen for Him to direct our path.
As you know, we have been visiting and caring for Dale’s folks in Lodi. It has been our pleasure to be able to assist them in whatever avenue they have to take. However, we have taken a week out for ourselves in the one place we both enjoy immensely.
We are at Sardine Lake. Our old boss let us come up and stay for the week. (they are next door) We arrived just in time to get drenched in a big rain storm. Lightening was flashing and booming all around us. It was fantastic.
We realized how much those little things count – birds singing their happy tunes, the total darkness and how still the forest can be. It is so quiet here. We will get to relax and enjoy the outdoors in 60 to 70 degree weather. We actually sat out at the picnic table this afternoon and had lunch there. I do wish I could take this all back to Lodi with us!
In those little things that count too, family comes out on top.
Life is good. God’s love is seen everywhere.
