On Saturday we had our campfire with The Family. The Mr. made sloppy joes, my sister provided Buffalo Chicken dip, my mom and dad brought donuts and cider. We had apples with carmel dipping sauce and sharp cheddar cheese and cocoa with "fixin's" and hot coffee and most of all; we had a great evening together. Before we knew it, it was almost midnight and we were still sitting around the fire enjoying both moments of laughter and sweet and comfortable quiet. Maybe I'm being overly sentimental, but I think there's an extra specialness in the fact that this is my grandparents' house. For me, those quiet moments are often ones when I'm remembering times gone by and a different generation sitting in this yard; when I was the child exploring this big yard with the soothing sounds of grown ups talking around me.
I hope you found some time this weekend to laugh and to quietly contemplate God's goodness. He is so very, very good.
