{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! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

Wednesday In The Word-Remember 9/11

One thing that 9/11 taught us is that tomorrow is not promised!   Image Credit If only we could apply that line of thinking to other areas of our life. The truth from the 9/11 tragedy is some of us now realize that the nice cars, big homes, fancy clothes, big diamonds, lavish trips and more, are here today and gone tomorrow. Maybe we have come to understand, as the Apostle John came to understand, that serving God is much more important than honoring our own desires. “For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John 2:16-17) We mourn for the families of that tragic day and pray for them. But may this tragic day be a reminder to us that our life on this earth is short. What are we doing with our today? If TODAY ends for you, where will you spend eternity

Wednesday in the Word-Spiritual Warfare

As Donna Pyle puts it in her Bible Study called, Your Strong Suit , spiritual warfare NEVER ceases! She goes on to say, "Living for Jesus in this present darkness is not waltzing through a meadow picking daisies. It is stumbling through enemy territory surrounded by snipers".   Image credit Living in such a fallen world as we do it is becoming all the more evident that WE as Christians must stay on guard to the schemes of the enemy. Satan came for one reason... .to kill, steel and destroy!   I want you to think with me for just a minute. What is a sniper? What does he do? A sniper has been in training. A sniper knows his target. A sniper scouts out his enemy. A sniper hides where no one can see him. A sniper makes himself look less visible to others by wearing a mask. A sniper locates his target, aims carefully and shoots. A sniper uses a distinct, high precision rifle and is a very sharp shooter.  The Sniper and Satan have a lot in common don't they? Sata
