I’ve had almost no energy to invest in blogging anything of consequence this week, so rather than trying to force a post with minimal quality, I pretty much just took the week off. Regular posting will resume next week. Until then, another photo from Roatan because that place was gorgeous! Seriously, check out at that water!
Right now, I’m sitting in Tampa after spending the last seven days cruising the Caribbean with three friends. More to come, but for now, enjoy this photo from the beautiful island of Roatan.
(See part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4 for more stories from the beach…)
As we prepare to leave this vacation at the beach and head back home tomorrow…
to our respective cities, to our sometimes-stressful jobs, to our studies, to our everyday routines…
I find my thoughts turned towards one simple truth…
God is good. ALL the time.
(See Part 1, Part 2, and Part3 for more stories from the beach…)
Today’s events included:
1) A bike ride.
Down by the bay.
At the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge to be exact.
After a 10.2 mile ride in the middle of a hot day, I pretty much felt like death (and no, I am not exaggerating…).
2. A puzzle.
Though technically this photo is from yesterday’s puzzle. And in all fairness, my brother built the puzzle…I only contributed about 20 pieces.
3. A celebration.
My grandparents are celebrating 60 years of marriage (in June):
And my parents are celebrating 30 years (this past March)!
4. A whole lot of relaxing.
I mean, really, is there anything sweeter than enjoying your morning coffee (or tea…I won’t discriminate) while overlooking the ocean?
I love the beach…
for the still and quiet of the morning ocean.
for the perspective that comes from sitting in the sand and breathing in the salty ocean air.
for the purposefully slower pace of each day.
for the perfect balance between the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the ocean breeze.
for the time to revel in the sweet moments of nothingness.
for the peace and calm of the evening ocean.
