Church Picnic Fun

The day after my mom passed away was the annual Church Picnic in Belleview. I debated about preaching and then about staying for the picnic....but ultimately decided to attend worship and to preach. I'm glad I did for a number of reasons: the wonderful support of our BUMC family, the hugs received, my Aunt Susie and Uncle Rich who drove up to be with us in worship that day, and a family from the church in Hudson that joined us in worship that day too. Plus the big boys had been looking forward with great anticipation to the picnic and its giant water slide on the hill in the backyard. They wanted to introduce their little brother to this rite of passage. All the kids and teenagers (and even some adults!) had a wonderful time on the slide. Davis went down with other people at first, but quickly caught on to going it alone as well.
