A God Outing

We have enjoyed our family all weekend long.  My mother in law came last Thursday to bring Noah home and to spend some days with us.  My mother in law has had some real family, in your face hard days this summer.  We have some usual spots and restaurants that we usually do during her visit however this time around we wanted to distract her so that she could feel some rest in her heart.

So Saturday we ventured out to sight see our beautiful city.  When I was younger my parents would take us Zilker Botanical Gardens.  Zilker Botanical Garden is located on 30 acres in Austin, Texas.  Theme gardens such as rose, herb and Japanese garden are interconnected with streams, waterfalls and Koi-filled ponds.  I loved it then and loved it all over again with the kids.  

From the gardens we could see beautiful downtown peeking through the skies.  This reminded of how God created everything and in Him we find our joy.

My mother in law is a strong women who has put all her trust in God.  She does not doubt where her help comes from.  She was also reminded that God is the one that brings strength to us when 
we are weak.

All things were created by him and for him. He is before all things and in him all things hold together.  
Colossians 1:16-17

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is 
declaring the work of His hands.

Psalm 19:1

What a great day of being together in God's nature.  You cannot help to know that God is on our side!

I thank God for his goodness in our lives!
