week of 'last time' for a while #2

Another last today for awhile - church as a family.

We attended Unity today with all of Nate's family and my mom. The church wanted to offer Nate and the family a blessing of love and safety - it was beautiful. Of course I got a bit emotional (nothing new about that) and took in every word of the blessing. The song was, "I behold the Christ in you" and that song is always so reassuring about a perfect love that is in us and is reflected to the world.

After the church service, we were honored with a vegetarian Potluck! Go figure, what church goes to such lengths to ensure that everyone is satisfied in a healthy way. I felt particularly special thanks to our church family.

Of course we taught Sunday School today and made Tibetian prayer flags, that with each movement of the wispy layers, a prayer is sent out. Jakes prayer included: the biggest burrito in the world, a scorpian ... I prompted him to offer a prayer for his Dad while he was away... so he included a picture of himself, Nate and Chance. Elizabeth and Rachel stayed with the little ones in the Nursery. The whole morning was wonderful - a wonderful way to send Nate off with a prayer for protection and a hug of kindness.
