Time at the lake!

This past weekend, we were invited to a friend's birthday party at a nearby lake. After the party, we walked and geocached near the lake. It was so pretty with the time of day being close to dusk, and with the beautiful sunset. Our sunsets have been very orange here because of all of the fires in the western states (Washington, Idaho and California) and we can see some smoke and haze here too. Usually our skies are so blue... we're praying for those in the west dealing with the fires. We pray God's safety for the firefighters and those nearby the fires, threatening homes.

Enjoy the pictures!
 There was a sailboat on the lake, we loved watching it!
 Just pretty views and sky...

 I loved seeing the cat tails by the irrigation canal leading to the lake...
Aahhh... we could have stayed here all day! It was so relaxing! The kids enjoyed swimming in the lake, even though it was cold. Every time we go there, we think, "Why don't we come here more often?!"

What about you? Is there a place you have been recently where you want to return to more often?

Matthew 13:46-48
“Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish. When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad away.

Mark 1:15-17
As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.  “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Luke 8:22-24
One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.  The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”
He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.
