...and He made all this for us?!
Sometimes we just jump in the car for a mini get-away,
as to not build up any expectations!
(We've been know to go with nothing but the shirts on our back,
thinking we are just going shopping at Ikea,
but end up having to stop at good ole' walmart for overnight supplies!)
It's like an adventure, so to speak,
as we never really know where we will end up!
The only thing we do know is, the resounding choice is always ~
to the beach!!
And no matter what time of the year we visit the west coast,
it never dissapoints!!
It always takes my breath away
brings me to my knees in tears!!!
I truely feel God's magnificence as the salty sea mist kisses my face ~
and feel those mighty waves rolling over my bare feet
that are anchored in the warm sand.
That is a most befitting description of how I feel when I am there
~ bare ~
and strangely, as I gaze out as far as the eye can see
all the cares and worries are carried away and
there is peace in that moment
overwhelmed in His love,
in His grace,
and in His gift!
We always stay a little longer than we should,
(I hate driving in the dark!!)
but ~ how could you not want to stay?!
As the sun is setting on our backs,
I look over to my beloved and think ~
today was one awesome day
and here are the smiles to prove it!!!
