A Great Day

May 9, 2008

Our son, Jared, is home from college. Yesterday he and I went canoeing on a little creek not far from our home. Aside from the noise of traffic on a nearby highway – you may have thought we were a million miles from civilization.

We saw one of the coolest sights – a hawk snatched a snake from the limbs of a tree right over our heads. We saw a chicken snake just a couple of feet away at eye level as we paddled along. There were a a variety of birds (including a blue heron), turtles and others among the wildlife.

But the real treat was spending time with a a great kid who seemed to enjoy the trip as much as I did.

Thank you, Lord, for a great day and a wonderful son.
