A day at the lake...

After eating a batch of chocolate chip cookies last night at midnight, I laid in the bed (all four of us sleep together) and listened to Sadie read out of her "365 Bedtime Devos for Girls".

"Starting your day with God"

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening." Psalm 92:1-2

"How do you start your day? Do you sleep till the last possible moment and then hop out of bed without giving a single thought to God? Hopefully not. If you're smart, you'll start your day with a prayer of thanks to your Heavenly Father. Each new day is a gift from God, and if you're wise, you'll spend a few quiet moments thanking the Giver. It's a wonderful way to start your day."

After we talked about this for a little while and said our prayers we drifted off to sleep.

I woke up this morning and jumped out of bed realizing I needed to head in to town and ship a couple of things off. I rushed and gathered my things and had Rich take me over to my car. I wanted to hurry and get back so we could enjoy the beautiful day. I shipped my stuff off and picked up a couple things at the store and headed back out. I may have rushed and not took the time to think of my blessings when I got out of bed but I sure did on my drive back to the lake. I always love the drive out, but today it was a little more meaningful. I guess you could say that I "had a little talk with Jesus" and it was a good one! I am so blessed and "sang my praises" and will start taking more time each morning to do so.

With that...

It was a beautiful day!!!!

Check it out. I don't always come prepared to climb the bank up to the rope swing so I talked real sweet to rich and was able to talk him out of his favorite pair of Vans. It doesn't happen often but today I sported them going off the rope swing.
