Tomorrow we have planned a two hour journey to a rented beach house for a six day holiday. We are taking the little dog. It has a secure enclosed yard.
Some may ask ‘What are you going to DO there? My reply may shock many. ‘Nothing!’
We have no plans to scuba dive, visit specific places. Attend Zoom meetings, Prayer Meetings. Even online blogging and internet and mobile phone and TV stuff etc.
What we hope to do is primarily first to BE. Aware of His Presence with us we hope it will be a time of refreshing, rest, restoration but most importantly of all affirmation that LOVING the Lord our Saviour is the most important thing in our lives.
We hope to walk, Pray, Maybe swim . It really is ALL in his Hands. We will meet the unplanned people when as walk, go out for meals or generally just live. This time is to celebrate HIM as well as to be grateful that in this 80th year of life for both of us we can still breathe in the sea air and maybe somewhat slowly, still walk the sands
Blessings and Love to you ALL, My blogging voice may be silent for a short period. I take you with us in our hearts and prayers.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
These are the best sorts of get-a-ways. Time to rest in His arms…away from the distractions which pull us from His embrace. I pray those 6 days were in every way blessed. 🥰
*Are! Are blessed..🤣🤣
Sounds absolutely wonderful.May our Lord bless you both as you journey with Him.
