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!
Played!
Laughed!
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.

Chorus:
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.
