Our kids and their leaders went geocaching in Ochoco National Forest this afternoon, and then roasted weenies and s’mores around a campfire. There is so much to be grateful for: the forest that is so beautiful and close by, leaders who love to hang out with kids and in the forest, the gift of our children, growing up learning how to love because they are loved, and, also, Eva, the retriever-girl who enjoyed playing in the forest with us. God is so good.
Happy are those who make the LORD their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods. You have multiplied, O LORD my God, your wondrous deed and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you. Psalm 40: 4,5
