I have been sort of absent around here the past couple of days, and it is because I am enjoying a vacation with family. My family has been going to the Maryland shore for about 15 years, and it definitely feels like home when I'm here. It might be part of my destiny to live on the ocean someday, or maybe just a beach house will do. I love swimming in the ocean and riding the waves! I also enjoy walking in the morning as the sun rises over the ocean. Here is a photo from this morning's walk.
It was quite hazy and humid this morning, but the temperature cooled down throughout the day. While I feel good about starting the day with a brisk 3 mile walk, I am embarrassed to say that I also stopped to pick up the best donuts in the world from the Fractured Prune. I got my favorite, carnival with honey and "jimmies," and it was delicious by the way!!
I just feel so at home by the ocean and overwhelmed by the beauty of God's creation. A storm rolled in over the beach tonight. It is just another reminder of how small we are in this great big world. Even when our problems seem too large to solve, we can remember the one that tells the sun when to shine and the ocean how far it can go. Our God is greater than all our problems. Like I said, I love it here!
