Last year, Julia and I decided to sign up to receive an "adopted family" through our church. We got a pretty amazing deal, to say the least. As soon as we pulled on to their property for the first time last year, we knew that we would want to spend as much time there as possible. Not only do they live on the most peaceful and beautiful piece of land, but their home is such a welcoming, warm, and restful retreat where relationships are being cultivated. Every time we leave them, we never fail to acknowledge the way that God had specifically placed them in our lives to inspire us, teach us, and accompany us on our crazy journeys. Here are some photos from tonight's dinner gathering. Click on the third image for a gallery. Heading to sleep with a happy tummy and an even happier heart!
