Needing a little Perspective!

Curtis is doing a consulting job at the coast and since neither child had school today we headed out to take photos and check on the progress of the job. We took a couple hours while there to play on the beach since it was such amazing weather for February. We definately require beach time to get a little good perspective in this family!
Tucker had never seen the ocean before. He wasn't sure why the kids would want to put their feet in that cold moving water. But he soon warmed up and enjoyed running around playing in the sand. He was in need of a bath by the end of the hour!

My daughter is always ready with a dramatic move for the camera.
It is hard to believe they were in shorts during February. Even though it was sunny, it was not very warm. Curtis and I were cold just looking at them.
We love this red-head beauty!
Our son has loved the beach since the day he was born. He has missed the Coast
so much and loved having a little time there today. He is a lot of fun to watch at the beach - always muddy and building something! (I wonder where he gets that?!?!)
Since Dad's phone was ringing the whole time we were there..reality is never far away, but it was good to enjoy the fresh air and time to run free.
We pray today for our many friends who are struggling with huge health issues and concerns - we love you, Friends! It was good to take a little time to get God's perspective again on what is important in life. Thank you Lord for the beauty of where we live, for life, for family and for You!

I have never once stood in front of the roaring waves and not been in awe of God's power. To me the ocean says it all.

i haven't been to the beach forever! glad to know it's still there - hehe... isn't that what perspective's all about? taking our eyes off what we see (and fixate on) and seeing for where it really stands in life. good reminder for me, meleea. thx.

I love taking the kids to the beach. It IS a reminder of God's awesome power. It looks like you had a great day. We need to get to the beach again!

I love the new blog design. Did you do that yourself? I don't know how to do all that stuff. Shannon did mine for me- just like she did almost everyone elses.
