Laguna de Apollo

This weekend we went to a giant crater named "Laguna de Apollo." It was beautiful! While we were there I did a lot of kayaking and swimming. We stayed in a cabana that was right on the water. It was very relaxing and a nice break from busy Managua.
On one of my many ventures out on the kayak, I went right to the middle of the laguna. I looked out and all I saw was God's creation. The only words that I could sing were "Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty, who was and is and is to come" the next line in that song is "with all creation I sing, praise to the king of kings, you are my everything and I will adore you." Those words had a new meaning than ever before. It was as if creation was singing along with me how Holy Christ is. Christ did not need to make the earth so beautiful and intricate, but he did, and for that I am grateful.
Congratulations Michelle and Jake, I pray God's sweet blessing on your marriage.

Hasta luego

That weekend must have been awesome. I agree with you. Remember when we went camping in Missouri at Johnson's Shutins? I looked out over the cliff with all of the water and rocks around and thought how could anyone say that there is no God! His creation is so breathtakingly beautiful. It is so nice that you are getting time to enjoy all aspects of the country. I love you! Momma
