Sunny Shores


.... Oh the sun beats down and melts the tar upon the roof, and your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fireproof... Under the boardwalk, down by the seeee-eee... Have you guessed it yet? Come on, I know some of you smarties know what movie that song is from.. that's right.. BEACHES!!! .. And that's where we are headed today! We are driving to beautiful sunny shores about 2 1/2 hours away to enjoy the weekend (we'll return Monday). We actually have beaches here where we live (about 8 miles south) but our beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast beaches are an awful mess after a certain visitor named Katrina last August... My sweet little boy is sooo super excited about seeing "where the sharks live, mommmy" (For the record, mommy is praying really hard that we see NO SHARKS!!). I am so, so looking forward to relaxing in the sun with my hubby and watching the babes play in the sand and the pool. It has been such a trying, hectic week that this mommy needs some rest... It's funny and amazing, isn't it, how our Heavenly Father just knows. Knows when we need a break, knows when we need rest, knows when we need time just to be... When we scheduled this little mini-vacation weeks and weeks ago, I had no idea how much we'd need it this particular weekend. But HE knew. He always does. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know he watches me.... how I love the sweet words of that song. And what a comfort it is to know... he watches me. Thank you Father, for watching me, loving me, saving me.........
Have a super weekend ya'll.
Much love,
Jennifer
