We went to our Summer Sanctuary yesterday.
It is one of the places where I have my most worshipful moments and where I feel God the closest.
Funny, because I would rather be at the beach that is right over the bridge.
But "rathers" aren't reality and I have found when I give thanks for what I'd rather not have it turns into a pretty amazing gift.
So I give thanks for the concrete instead of the sand and the salt water that is pumped in through a filter and for the lift that gently lowers Ethan into this gift.
And when I watch him swim and kick his legs, the legs that don't usually move, God is all around me and I can't help but worship Him.
The joy that Ethan experiences is contagious and that joy causes me to enter into this Summer Sanctuary with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise!
