We had a great time today at the park. We were even joined by some friends for a while, which makes it even more fun! I packed a lunch for us all and we took some time to enjoy God's beautiful creation. Ben even took the boys down to a little creek for some adventure. Here are some pictures:
Sword Fighting, of course!
Climbing the "rock" wall
There are times in your life that will always stand out in your mind, and this happens to be one of those occasions. I had been sick for a while, and it was discouraging for me, but I started to feel better. I seemed to be fine yesterday morning (Tuesday), but the afternoon brought a headache that was debilitating to say the least (I really wanted to bang my head on something to make it stop hurting, but opted for 3 ibuprofen instead.) Anyway, we had finished our family devotion, and Ben asked the kids to come off their beds, and come lay hands on me so that they could all pray for me to get better. They each prayed for me. Sweet Caleb, took his hands off of me so that he could "fold his fingers" while he prayed for me, and then as soon as he was done, he put his hands back on my forearm. This will forever stand out in my mind as a time where I felt well loved. God knew I needed that.
