A Picnic Rain or Shine

Although Kathryn hasn't been very well today, she seems to be slowly improving. There isn't much we can do for her and she feels best when sleeping. The rest of us are getting ready for a church picnic here at the house tomorrow. The lawn is mowed. The main dish, pork barbecue, is ready. The creek is ready for little feet. The tables are set up on the porches. Am I worried about the sixty percent chance of rain and storms tomorrow? There was a time that I would have worried about it, but a change of perspective has freed me from worry over things I can't do anything about. I think our picnic will be a lot of fun. The picnic is really for a young family leaving for Turkey to serve the Lord there and share His truth with those who are longing for peace. As they face many more dangers than a thunderstorm, we are glad to have them here tomorrow along with some church friends. We used to do this kind of thing several times a year. It seems right to be back hosting an event that will bless our church. They have certainly been a blessing to us.
