Morning by the campfire
Recently a friend of mine shared that she and her husband had been having their morning quiet time by their campfire in the back yard. Her hubby doesn't leave for work as early as Mr. T, so that works for them -- but not for us, at least on weekdays!
In years past when we camped a lot, we always loved having our morning coffee and quiet time by the campfire. We do have a campfire permit and a fire ring in our back yard, so when my friend mentioned what they were doing, my ears perked up. Last Saturday we decided to try their idea.
Mr. T built a campfire and we took out our camping chairs and a little table.
What a tranquil way to begin a Saturday morning -- relaxing by a campfire with coffee, Bibles and prayer journals at hand! We had a campfire again this morning and will probably do so each Saturday, weather permitting. We're so thankful for this peaceful start to our Saturday!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
