Since we’re smack dab in the middle of spring break, (ok, it’s almost over, but anyhow…), I seem to be applying the spring cleaning philosophy with me wherever I go. “Use it or get rid of it!” When I had to move our outdoor fireplace to make way for our new planter boxes, I realized we hadn’t really used it in a while. I always think I will remember when it’s cold, but after dinner on a chilly evening I don’t ever feel like going outside! Then it occurred to me. Whenever we camp, my favorite are not the evening campfires, though those are special, too. I LOVE morning campfires! A new day. A fresh start. Brisk morning air. The world is quiet. A cup of coffee… yes, morning campfires rock.
At first they were content reading and enjoying the fire and each other’s company. It was quite sweet! It didn’t take long before someone asked for the obvious; morning s’mores. What the heck; it is spring break!
We’ve since had a couple morning fires, and I think it might be a great new morning devotion spot! Hooray for re-discovering old treasures!
