That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake.
I smiled when I read this verse, taking it alone and outside of the full context in which it was written. Such an ordinary thing for Jesus to do, but he needed time alone with his Father, and I need time alone with him.
I love the beauty of this created world, and I love being in it. I think the next time I go to the lake and sit down on the shore, I'll smile and remember that Jesus did the exact same thing; and then I'll spend some time alone with him there, talking and enjoying what he made.
