After church we had nowhere to be and no firm agenda for the day. We spent the afternoon enjoying the pool...and each other.
Giggles abounded!P & K were able to shake off their early Summer intimidation and 'remember' how to get their faces wet and swim. R enjoyed games that allowed his face to stay dry, but had a great time. He was particularly into a big game of dodgeball of the lawn outside the pool. Watching him with those 'big boys' his Daddy & I were reminded that he has the heart of competitor.As the sun set and we journeyed home I had a huge grin on my face. The afternoon had been such a picture of childhood, Summer, laughter, happiness...In my little corner of the world, it was a good day to be alive. And yet, as I downloaded these pictures tonight I felt a nudge in my soul.
Pssst. This world is not your home. JUST YOU WAIT to see what I have planned for you in Heaven. You haven't seen anything yet. The best is truly yet to come.
Today was one of those days that makes that thought mindboggling. It was certainly not perfect...but it was full of love and life and laughter.
However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him" I Corinthians 2:9 NIV
