The Hike to the Lake

I was blessed with another beautiful day with my family. We hiked to a nearby lake. It's early enough in the summer, that we still trudged through snow, and found ice on the lake. It was a lot of fun. Our youngest son climbed up a snow bank on the side of the mountain and slipped, he came sliding down at full speed. It was funny and scary at the same time. God had His hand on him.
When we reached the lake, we all ate lunch on top of a rock. One of the dogs got stuck in a bush and needed to be rescued by our sons. The baby was sprayed by another wet dog. Yet, in the midst of all our family chaos we all managed to take lots of pictures and climb lots of rocks and simply enjoy the beauty of God's creation.
Once again, the best part for me was the time with my family. On the way home we stopped at a local gas station that sells ice cream. It was a welcome treat. My grandson had his dinner too, and we visited under a shelter at the picnic table. God is good everyday and the hike to the lake was good. I will want to go again.
Jesus, Say That Again, You are good, and You continue to remind me of that by giving me precious time with the family that I love and surrounding me with Your Beauty. Thank you.
