A Taste of Virginia Countryside

 We took a January journey this year.  Our first stop was in Virginia, in the Bristol area.  We wanted to attend worship at another CRE church in our presbytery and we chose St. Peter in Bristol.  We were invited to lodge with the minister of the Bristol Parish and then we were invited to eat lunch and spend the afternoon with a family from the Mendota Parish.  The pictures in this post I took on Sunday afternoon when we took the children and went for a walk along a river near the home of our hosts.  Beautiful country setting.
 Samuel immediately found a softshell turtle and brought it over to show everyone.

 You'd never have known that it was January, the weather was so beautiful.

 Making friends is so easy when you're little.

A very refreshing time.  Truly, it was a gift from God.
