The "inner circle"

Alternatively titled:  "The family within the family."

Dave and I consider our church part of our family.

But, just like in a blood-related family, there's always an inner circle.

The group that knows us best.

The group that supports us, challenges us, keeps us accountable.
The one that constantly prays for us.

The group that knows us best.

For Dave and I, that's our small group.

Births, deaths, hospitalizations, addictions, possible impending brain surgeries...

This is the group we turn to, we rely on,
we love.

And while we're not actively involved in a study over the summer,
we get together for some active fellowship.

One couple has a cottage north of us on a lake, and they were nice enough to invite us all up
for a Saturday filled with:

swimming...
                                             .....squirt guns....

                                                farmer tans....
                                  boating....


tubing....

                                           leisuring.....
                                                        

                                                            napping....



                                                         dock crowding....


fishing....

                                                 catching....

....just plain having fun.

What a great way to spend the perfect summer Saturday.
