I felt God’s love all around me in so many moments today, from the overwhelming passion that welled inside during the music at church to the purchase of a car, but one feeling wraps itself around me like a hug from a living, loving Father. In the busy-ness of the day, my family went to the lake to grill some food for dinner and swim for awhile. Much of the time was spent chasing my two-year-old, but my ten-year-old offered to watch her and play in the sand with her for a little while, with my husband watching from a nearby picnic table. I had a chance to swim and then, brief moments to float weightlessly, the noise of the crowded lake drowned by the warm water. I felt totally at peace, the sort of trusting contentment I strive to allow myself to feel in my relationship with my Lord and Savior. It was absolutely beautiful.
