An afternoon on the lake is good medicine

This morning was a good morning. We went to church, and it was a good time of worship. We stayed for Snack Attack - a time for coffee, snacks and fellowship. That was good too. So I couldn't figure out, after coming home, why I was feeling blue. I told Craig about it - and he suggested that we have a picnic lunch out on the boat. We packed up some sandwich stuff, pop and chips. We put on our bathing suits, grabbed towels, books, and our inflatable kayak and put it all in the boat. We got Percy too, and headed out onto the lake. We puttered around the lake, and then stopped out in the middle to drift. It was a wonderfully relaxing afternoon - and it really lifted my spirits.

If you're feeling down today:
1) tell someone
2)ask them to help you find something to do that is different from your normal routine
3)go outside and get some fresh air, sunshine, and exercise
4)start counting your blessings - make a list of them, big and small -and thank God for them all.
It worked for me, and it can work for you.

That does sound like good medicine. I wish we could have been there. I think being out on the lake is one of the best parts of the new house!
