This Good Day!

We love the water! Ronnie grew up by the ocean and I have always loved being by any large body of water. So today was a particular treat for us as we got to go boating with some good friends! The weather was beautiful and there was hardly a cloud in the sky!

We tubed!
And enjoyed a good day!

I can't help but think of this Fernando Ortega song that I love:

Morning sun and morning glories
Pouring down the hill,
Through my window
I can feel the ocean breeze.

Noisy sparrows fill the oak trees
Swallows can't stay still.
And in the glad commotion
Lord, You speak to me.

If rain clouds come
Or the cold winds blow,
You're the one who goes before me
And in my heart I know

This good day
It is a gift from You.
The world is turning in its place
Because You made it to.
I lift my voice
To sing a song of praise
On this good day.

Fun day! I love that song. In the early days of having two kids when it was so, so hard I remember holding an infant Tukes and dancing with Boo to that song, while trying to really believe that the day would be a good one.

It was such an awesome day. What you didn't see was three of us on the tube. That was a lot of fun, and dangerous too. :) My whole body is sore from trying to stay on and falling off.
