Caught by surprise

The day starts out rather ordinary. We rush to get ready. We rush to do grocery shopping. We rush home to put the groceries away. We rush to get packed up for a day away. And then...

And then comes sunshine and family and music outdoors and a feeling of worship that most churches could only dream of and relaxation and dancing and roast turkey and garden potatoes with fresh dill and a feeling of community amongst strangers.

And we leave there as the stars are popping out. We put the kids in their pajamas and we toss our bags and lawnchairs and new cds in the van. And we just start to exhale and plan our return trip next year and we look at each other in the quietness of the night as our kids are drifting off to sleep behind us and we realize that we just had one of the best days of our lives.

Song: Two Bit Suit by John Wort Hannam (the singer in the last frame of the slideshow)
