The Mother's Day Jaunt

While in Portland for my son's graduation, it was strongly suggested by my oldest son that rather than drive straight home we drive to Seattle first! He pled his case for a good 30 minutes before my husband decided it would be a fun adventure. He just had to mention Seattle to me, and I was ready to go.
We left Mother's Day morning bright and early. Our first destination was the Mars Hill church downtown Seattle.  The sermon was about Philippians 4:6,7:

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And  the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I've put a lot of thought into the command,  "be anxious for nothing". Hmm, is that actually possible? It must be, and not only that but peace is being offered beyond my comprehension! The only thing I have to do is PRAY.

So, church on Mother's Day, was very nice, and I'm still thinking about it....
After church, we walked to the market.

 We looked at the fish.

 And, I admired the vegetables.
 The flowers were exceptional.
 And, we ate lunch on the pier.
It was a delightful day, one of the best! I was able to enjoy worship, time with my husband, time with my children, a lovely city, a road trip, the market, and coffee!  The Mother's Day Jaunt was fantastic. And, because of the jaunt, I am asking God to Say That Again to me "be anxious for nothing, Bethany, just pray!"
