Outside

"Is it so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived light in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done?"
--Matthew Arnold

"Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it."
--Anne De Lenclos

Today, our worship service was held outside, in our town square area - so fun! A gorgeous day to be outside - sunny, warm (but not too warm), breezy. A beautiful morning!
Ok, maybe more than a little breezy - it was downright windy at times!
The crowd is gathering - a much bigger turnout than I anticipated! And a few visitors that checked us out while having their morning coffee at Caribou Coffee. Always nice to meet new neighbors!
Camille playing a lovely prelude on her flute. Carly jumped in to help when the wind gusted and threatened to blow away Camille's music! Thanks, Carly!
Pastor Penny sharing the message...
and involving the kids! She invited them up to participate in the sermon - lots of chuckles!
Getting creative in dealing with the wind! Clothes-pins were a life-saver today!
Our bell ladies - sounded lovely outside in the park! Thank you, ladies!

Such a nice way to spend the morning - nice weather, good friends, lemonade and coffee, and thanking God for the goodness in our lives!

I hope you all have a splendid Sunday!
