Views From a Few Days Away

Taking the time to get away is healthy.  Too often in my life I haven’t really done this.  I’ve been guilty of trying to put four days of relaxation into two days and although it has been good, it wasn’t what it could have been.

Cyndi and I spent some time at Mexico Beach last week.  We  would move there in a flash if circumstances made it possible.  It’s a beautiful stretch of Florida’s Gulf Coast – largely undeveloped with sugar white sand!  Most beachgoers cleared out by 6:30 or 7:00 p.m. and as we walked and watched the sunsets we had long stretches of coast just to ourselves!

Here are some pics Cyndi captured on our first full day of enjoying it all:


This is a great setting to reflect, to talk, to dream, to just enjoy creation!  I’m glad we had the chance to experience this time together.  God uses His handiwork to remind us of His glory and we were reminded in a huge way on this trip!  I’ll get some more pics up soon along with some thoughts that not only bounced around in our heads but were verbalized by both of us!
