This Father's day in pictures...
First we gathered in Mindi's backyard for praise, worship and scripture study. We were missing many for early summer travel. And we did miss them... BBQ and fellowship followed.
We didn't get home until 5:30 at which time we enjoyed our own form of fellowship in our backyard.
At dusk we did what dad always wants to do on a lazy summer evening. We went for a drive through the ranch land searching the alfalfa fields for deer and elk. We always get our fill of deer but the elk are much more elusive. Often my eagle eye, hunter husband can spot them on a hillside. He'll patiently try to get us to see what he sees, usually to no avail, and we are left to either trust him or decide that he just sees what he wants to.
Today was entirely different, and I need to eat a little crow. Because, this time when he stopped the car and excitedly declared, "ELK!" I had to admit that they really do exist. And not just in my hubby's imagination. They were beautiful and standing right there for us to see. We really do live in God's country! And He gave our dad a gift this Father's day.
