Hayless Hayride

We took the kids last night to a Hayless Hayride as part of Driven. I kept thinking 'Sweetest Day, no boyfriend (or husband), no flowers, no candy, and I am hanging out with a bunch of teenagers, great, I need a life!' But that's the way the 'world' thinks, Sweetest Day isn't a real holiday, it was made up by Sanders.

Then it occurred to me, who needs cut flowers when I get to see each one of these flowers bloom in God's love everyday. Duh! So I thought I would share (I took over 100 pictures, these are just a few). It's amazing to me when I just change my perspective on things how God shows me how much He loves me. Sometimes... i wish I wasn't such a dope.

It wasn't a normal hayride, it was horse drawn!!

This is Phyllis and Ryan, her "boyfriend" that lives in Fraser!

The girls love Justin!!
