Jonathan and I wanted to hang out with some friends today with whom we haven’t hung out in awhile. They don’t have their beach tokens yet, and we didn’t want to go out and spend any money, so we decided to invite them over to sit on the porch and hang out. Though the view off our porch is of a brick building and wooden staircases, it is certainly an amazingly large back porch considering apartment living in a large city. We are fortunate to have such a back porch, yet we rarely use it for things other than a temporary trash hold or for our recycling. 

It was such a beautiful day out today. It was a nice afternoon to enjoy our rustic little patch of outdoor living with some friends. 

Praise God for a beautiful day and for time and space to spend with friends.
