This place is beautiful. The weather is wonderful. We have already been able to reconnect with some old friends and we had a great day. I am looking for God everywhere I go. This morning shortly after we had breakfast and the picture of Delaney was taken. I was setting alone outside looking out at the lake feeling the wind blow off the lake. It caused me to think of the old Hebrew word for the Holy Spirit. Ruach. It means breathe or wind. I was then taken to the song by Casting Crowns, "I know Your There." This song talks about how God is always there for us. It was as if I could feel the touch of God as the wind blew.
Then I saw flying over the water a bald eagle. It was one of those awe inspiring sights. Nicole and the kids were in the camper so I jumped up still trying to keep my eye on the eagle because I didn't want to miss the sight. As I jumped up a banged my face right into our awning rail. By the time I shook off the blow and got the ids out the eagle was nowhere to be seen.
This is going to be a good time of re-creating and encountering God in nature, in my family, in old friends and new friends I meet. A great time of being filled with the "wind."
In Christ's love and mine,
Here is the Casting Crowns song-- enjoy!
