My Sunday morning was not spent inside Church yesterday, but rather on beautiful Lake Austin with the Love of my Life and Frogdog, too. It was wonderfully serene, bright, and enlivening–I loved it! And I found myself much more thankful to God than on many Sunday mornings spent with heavy eyelids sitting in Church. This is not to say that I think going to Church is inconsequential or unnecessary, because not only do I think it is important, I think it is enjoyable most of the time; Brian and I both truly like our Church. But, like switching up my workout routine or trying a new recipe, sometimes, getting away from the normalcy of life makes me appreciate it all the more.
And I definitely appreciated yesterday morning spent soaking up the warm sunshine, kayaking with Brian and watching Froggie greet a turtle for the first time. It is the simple things that really make up my favorite memories. And I will not soon forget that morning spent with my man.
