Picnic by the pond
Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days of summer. It was actually bearable to be outside for over ten minutes. Jordan and I took advantage of the weather and made ourselves some sandwiches for a picnic. I forgot how much I love picnics. They are so relaxing! I think we need to make more of a habit of eating outside during the summer.
We found some geese and we attempted to feed them pretzels. They wanted nothing to do with those pretzels.
After our meal Jordan read a passage from Romans 5
"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love."
so we left feeling encouraged. We spent Sunday afternoon soaking up the Lord's beautiful creation. And we knew that we were loved.
