I have always loved the beach. My mom was a sun bunny and if we weren't in our pool we were down at the beach. It used to be a nostalgic thing wanting to always to be on a towel, under the sun with a boom box playing some hits while looking at the latest fashion mag. It is no longer something that reminds me of fond childhood memories but something much more therapeutic for me.
Doritos, frozen watermelon and turkey subs are a must have at the beach.
Besides having babies not much has changed from season to season. Maybe just reading material and the size of the sound system I tow along. (anyone else remember making sure to pack extra D batteries for your box while making a day at the beach??)
ahhhh, the sun, sand and beach are calling my name.
There is so much beauty at the beach. It's just good for the soul. To reflect on God and his greatness.
Last year especially, while dealing with big things and overcoming struggles I would stare out into the deep blue. God would whisper his word from Micah 7:19 to me
"He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast ALL our sins into the depths of the sea."
Now if that isn't comforting to know, I don't know what is.
What about you, do you love the beach? Are you counting down the days to be able to soak up the sun on the sand too?
