We took a blanket, and our cheese and meat sandwiches, and everything Ivan could possibly need
(except for his pacifier, of course)
And we sat in the front row with our good friend Steph
(who also brought a blanket)
And we all sang together, under those big tall trees and great blue sky
(except for Ivan, who kept busy spitting up and staring at people over Brett's shoulder)
And then after that we all sat down to study God's Word
(except for me and Ivan -- we stood in the back because he didn't have his pacifier)
Together we studied about God's grace
(it's an amazing topic, isn't it?)
And I was reminded that "Ivan" means "God is gracious"
(or "gift of God", which is also good)
And I was thankful to be part of the church.
(what a great gift it is to be part of a Christian community, don't you think? )
