Florida and Me

29 Mar

I swam and stared at the ocean.

I clapped with the others on the beach after the sunset.

I read books outside and walked the dog barefoot.

I overdid the tanning oil, but got my base tan for the season.

I ate seafood and swayed with the man playing the steel drum and made jokes about coleslaw with my mom and dad and grandma.

I drank Starbucks instead of home-brewed coffee.

And somehow it was all just what I needed.

Rested.
Refreshed.
Energized.

Lord let the palm trees, rolling waves and sun rays seep past my skin and settle into my heart as peace that comes with me everywhere!

    So happy for you that you were able to do this for yourself and your Lord.
