Saturday my friends and I went up to the lake and cut down our very own Christmas tree! It was such a beautiful day and so refreshing to soak in the splendor of the Lord's creation. I never knew that people actually went into the forest and cut down their own tree, it was so much fun. We hunted for the perfect one (of course trying to get everyone to agree on the tree was slightly difficult). Treading through the snow, taking endless pictures, and of course laughing the entire time reminded me how the Lord shows His love for us not only through His creation but through the interactions between our brethren. During this difficult season of my life the Lord continues to bless me and He gives me eyes to see those blessings. Good is good, all the time.
