So Happy Together

Our time together was brief--just about 30 hours if you include the time in the car to McCall and back--but our mini family retreat was just perfect. We enjoyed beautiful weather and beautiful scenery as we hiked together, we ate pizza and popcorn, we sipped tea/coffee/hot chocolate by the fire, we watched I Love Lucy, we played Bananagrams, we slept in, and we prayed together and for each other. As we looked into God's Word together, Dear Husband shared yet more wisdom from Psalm 127:

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies at the gate."
~Psalm 127: 3-5

God bless your family. You're most welcome for the pie link. My daughter-in-law, who lives on the other side of the country, was smitten with the recipe. She sent me photos of our grand-daughter digging into a slice. Thank you!
