{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my!

T HANK YOU !   I was working on my Bible study for this week and wouldn't you know it? It is basically on Trusting God. We are so quick to say to ourselves and to others that YES we do trust God but I am afraid that if we were to be truthful that most of us are by " Totally Tr usting " God like we are a smorgasbord at a restaurant. We like to pick and choose what we really Trust Him with.  The real issue of the matter is that we want to control!  Control is the se cret ad ultress to good intent! Think about it! We really have good intentions but just like a robber hiding in a dark closet, control ambushes us. It gags
