From the trees

Ever have one of those days where you feel like God was all over it, and noth­ing big hap­pened? Yes­ter­day was like that.

We start­ed the day out with get­ting awak­ened by our three year old, Tris­tan, who jumped into bed with us. After about 20 min­utes, he decid­ed it was time to wres­tle instead of snooze.

Then we had a gath­er­ing with our clan and Shammah’s clan (clans are real­ly just small groups of house­holds to help us take care of each oth­er better–it can be easy to get missed in the shuf­fle of almost 300 peo­ple) out on the hill behind our house. It was a gor­geous day, and it was won­der­ful to praise God out in the sun­shine and wind.

We ate lunch with friends, talked to more friends, played with our boys and their friends, and went on a walk to “the Enchant­ed For­est,” which are the woods at the top of the hill in the back pas­ture. I climbed to the top of a tree at the top of the hill, where I got this pho­to on my phone, then had an acorn war with the sev­en kids we had tag­ging along with us, and built a fairy fort out of sticks and acorns.

I love when God meets you in the sim­ple things like play­ing with chil­dren and look­ing at the world from the top of a tree.
