Big sis and baby sis...aren't they pretty...you can tell Jay would rather be down playing with all those cool toys!
This is our new friend, Shannon. She got to know Ash real well while Ash 'tubed for the first time. At least the sound of Ash's scream will probably be etched in Shannon's brain. Forever.
I kept thinking last night that this is the life...maybe even the abundant life Jesus promised. But then I thought how "American" that sounded. Do tribal people in Africa not get the abundant life because they don't water ski, eat hot dogs, or camp out? That's when I refined my thoughts a bit...it's not the activities we were doing that made life feel so good yesterday, it was the sharing of what we had (believe me, that wasn't our boat or 'tube!), sharing a meal, enjoying the enthusiasm of children playing with their friends while enjoying good fellowship--all while experiencing God's creation together. It's comfortable friendships, good hospitalitity and good conversation...that's the good stuff!
