Moments and Reminders

Last year one of our favourite summer outings was having rented a small motor boat in one of resident lakes.  On that small boat we journeyed to the center of the lake. That day we discovered the peace and serenity of the waters, and it was the greatest thing ever.  Even Benjamin was quietly sitting there gazing out into the graceful waters, so serenely.  It was one of those times in our lives when we were so overwhelmed by all the things occurring around us, that we needed to be reminded that God was still with us.  Even pastors have moments where sometimes they need to be reminded that God will get them through the trial.  God led us to this little tranquil place and we were, indeed, reminded of this.  I remember that exact feeling as if it were yesterday. That in a spur-of-the-moment decision we found ourselves in a little boat surrounded by water, and it was the little escape we needed to be encouraged.  (1 Peter 5:10)

This year, the experience was quite different. We are definitely not at the place we were the previous year.  This time it was about a family of almost 4.   It was about gentle movements inside of my womb. It was about relaxation.

It was about a bond between father and son.  It was about fishing, and first time catching of small fish. It was about proud-dad moments.
Fish catching
 It was about a luminous warm afternoon off full of laughter, stories and even singing. It was about the strong bond of a small family.  It was a happy time, and even so, we were reminded once again that everything belongs to God.  That our lives are not our own, and to Him we belong! (John 1:3)
