God’s love takes the form of tender loving care

There were occasions for swimming in the deep, clear water and lounging on the deck afterward, or the churning of the lake water while enjoying a rapid jaunt in a speed boat, or perhaps venturing a solo excursion on the wave runner or enjoying the camaraderie of the paddle boat.
