Foundation of fellowship...and camping
'But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another; and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin' 1 John 1:7
This was the verse in our devotional last night and it really seemed to fit with some of the thoughts I have been processing recently. It reminded me that in the efforts we are making to connect and deepen intimacy, it's important to include a strong spiritual core. Activities such as praying with and for one another will help us create intimacy as much or even more so than things like camping!
Speaking of, we just returned from a fabulous weekend in La Conner, WA. We packed up the car and headed out Friday afternoon. We seemed to find the only spot in the state that had sunshine! The forecast had prepared us for showers throughout out stay but we had sunshine and warm weather! The skies didn't get overcast until mid morning on Sunday and as we drove home towards Seattle we hit the rain. Thank you Jesus for keeping us dry, we had such a great time. Relaxing and peaceful, just what we needed. Did I mention that there was a hot tub? 'nuff said.
We got the best camp site in the whole place and had access to the little beach area and the most glorious views. We made a fire on Saturday night and just enjoyed being out in nature. We also hit up the mini golf course and took some trips into town and into Anacortes where we found some fun antique shops and delicious food!
