“Near the sea we forget to count the days.” That quote is so true! I have always loved the beach, but my husband has only recently been converted to beach loving over the last few years. (He actually doesn’t really like the beach, but rather, the ocean (as viewed and heard from the balcony. I have to say, I’m inclined that way now, myself.) There is something about the ocean that is so soothing, so relaxing, that the day of the week slips my mind
Anyway, husband, daughter, and I spent a few nights at Orange Beach, Alabama (near Gulf Shores) last week. (We left there a day earlier than planned, to avoid “some rain” that was coming, and we really dodged a bullet. The area we left was hit with historic rainfall and flooding the next day!)
Son stayed home for classes and work. (I really didn’t feel guilty–he hates the beach. WHAAT?! But I would still have loved to have him with us. As he said, the pictures look as though he is “erased from the family.”)
We were thrilled to have a full moon our second night there,
and this view. Wow. I’d never seen the moonlight on the ocean like that before.
But it’s back to the real world now, and there is a lot to do.
Some upcoming projects—daughter’s vegetable garden, home remodeling, art journaling, and calligraphy projects. I promise to keep you updated.
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
