Moon Over Morgantown

Moon Over Morgantown, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
I took this photo Monday night after our Canvas group kick-off in Morgantown at Chestnut Ridge Church.

It was one of those nights where I regretted not having my mini-tripod my brother bought me at REI. The thing is so small and easy to carry, that there was really no excuse for not having it. I've been forgetting my camera a lot lately though. Don't know what's up with that.

We had planned a cookout and a campfire, but the weather was freezing here on monday, and the location we had initially planned for the event was turned into a swamp by massive amounts of rain. So, we moved things to the church. We brought a fire-pit, a bbq, and it was just an awesome time! I think we had about 50 people come out to kick-off our summer-time small group community.

After the event was officially over, folks continued to hang out for quite some time. That's the beautiful thing about our community. People just enjoy being around each other so much, that they share a lot more than just a meeting together. They care for each other, they pray for each other, and they just plain have FUN together. A LOT.

In fact, as a group of us watched the moon rise over the trees, we started planning a fun little trip together. Sometime in mid june, we are going to hike the North Fork Mountain Trail. It's rated WV's most beautiful trail and stretches about 24 miles. So if you want to join us, now is the time to start getting into condition for it!

And in the mean time, take a moment every once in a while to enjoy the beauty before you in things like the rising of the moon on a cool Spring evening.
