Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

All about Boston - Part 1

I am going to do an ongoing series of things I will miss about Boston. I thought about doing it on my Five for Fridays but I would really like them all together for me to go back and remember one day.

1. We will miss our church in Boston so much.  Park Street has been a wonderful church home for our family this year.  The preaching and teaching have been great.  My women's bible study has been life changing.  The fellowship, children's church, and nursery have been terrific.  We were really blessed to find this precious church for our year in Boston.
It is located right next to the Boston Commons so we spend lots of time in the Commons and Garden before and after church and bible study.  It is always busy around our church with people everywhere...truly so fun!

2.  The Charles River, especially the Esplanade.

 4. The Aquarium

 5. Traveling by train everywhere. We love public transportation. I am not looking forward to driving everywhere with the boys stuck in a carseat. We love our Boston trains

6.  The history that goes with Boston.

I love seeing Boston through your experiences! You have really lived in the city. I know you are going to miss it so much. Mmmm...Mike's... Looks like you can order online. I wonder if it's any good by the time it arrives. That just isn't the same! I thought the "T" was great and it makes me sad that we don't have such a great system here.
