We had such a wonderful day yesterday!

We did home church. We read Psalm 8, talked about it and even SANG the song that it inspired.

Psalm 8
O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?

You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,

the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

I love that Psalm. We prayed together and had a really nice, calm, family morning. Then we went to the grocery store, bought picnic stuff and headed to the park! It was such a gorgeous day here in TX. Sunny and 60 degrees. We had so many grey days that we just couldn't possibly stay indoors.

We threw a few pieces of bread into the lake and learned something interesting about Seagulls. They're cowards! They flew over the bread for quite a while, until the ducks made it over and started eating it. Once the gulls knew it was safe, they flew down and snatched the bread from the ducks.

We called some family and friends and they joined us in the afternoon, we did many fun outdoorsy activities like horseshoes, frisbee, football, soccer, and biking; sometimes all at the same time, and ever scarier, sometimes at the same time, in the same place!

A few friends and I sat and soaked up the sun (after taking part in several of the activities listed above). I sat and watched my wonderful family and friends, worked on my latest afghan crocheting project, and praised God for his wonderful creation.

O Lord our Lord how majestic is your name in all the earth, Indeed!
Here are a few photos of our wonderful day.
