Monday. the bane of the work week. but today is MONDAY!!! the day after the Sabbath!!! and I have had a five day Sabbath from work, today is day six.
we escaped… and it was a Great Escape. took food, bicycles, flip flops and headed to Michigan. (note pic to the right). started out hot humid and ewwww… then a day of rain when we sat in our pjs until past 12noon, binged on NetFlix, and then it was cooler sunny and gorgeous. Grand Haven MI. late dinners, late breakfasts, cycling and the beach on the lake. if you head north, definitely see Righteous Cuisine for the most amazing delicious guacamole and chips and tacos and specials. Holland MI was very nice, didn’t get to spend enough time there, but we will be back!!
Grand Haven State Park and Beach…. with the Pier and the lighthouse. wowsers. The sunsets, the change in the lake in 24 hours ~ went from smooth as glass to rolling breakers & crashing waves with gale winds up to 70mph. watched the Coast Guard rescue a sail boat, got soaked in the waves, got great pics, and wondered how can anyone not believe in an all knowing and loving Creator God.
because… the purpose of the get~away was the anniversary of our wedding. of 39 years as man & wife. 39 years of ups & downs. 39 years of God’s faithfulness, of His mercy, of His blessings, of His never leaving us in the dark. NEVER. 39 years of not going without. 39 years of having what we need. 39 years. where did the time go? how did this happen? 39 years.
Thank you Samwise Gamgee for 39 + 3 years. for loving me as Christ loves the Church. you are His reflection to me.
