God blessed our picnic deeply.
My spiritual father reminded us that today (old calendar)
is St. Seraphim of Sarov's day.
The weather was sunny, cool in the shade
the lake nice and warm.
I never want days like this to end.
I told our lovely host that this day
(outside of Holy Week)
is second to Christmas for me.
Our once a year church picnic.
Truly this day was a gift from God.
