"At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment.
We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun."
~ Sandy Gingras
It is something we look forward to all year long. From the time we leave until we return again, our hearts yearn for the ocean. It is our yearly destination and a family tradition. My dad farms throughout the spring and summer, so we have always taken family vacations in the fall. We spend our Thanksgiving holiday by the seashore. We give thanks for another year, each and every moment together, and showers of undeserved blessings. Here are a few snapshots of our time together. Playing in the sand, salt air in our hair, cold and cloudy, we didn't care.
The vastness of the ocean just magnifies God's glory. The sound of the waves, the slower pace, the fresh air...it is refreshing, satisfying, and soothing to the soul. I am thankful for many things, but this week, I am especially thankful for these precious moments and a chance to slow down and just enjoy the ones I love.
I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!
