We made a fire pit in our back yard last night. All three kids helped make the fire ring with bricks.
The generation I grew up in didn't spend enough time around fires. The younger generation doesn't either. Our children were introduced to a new tradition last night. In the grind of parenthood, the hustle of life, and the pull from electronic devices it was great to just sit outside with the crackle of the fire and the coolness of the breeze.
We laughed, told stories, and spent time telling the kids about Jesus. We all have the tendency to not slow down.....I encourage it! It is great to stop and enjoy the outdoors, Gods great handiwork on display. A low pressure community in a circle, the fire pit.
