Last week was Spring Break,
a welcome chance to relax and enjoy time with family and friends.
One morning we grabbed some gear
|Michael with his snorkel|
and headed to the beach with friends for the day.
Sometimes we forget about the beauties of the tropics;
or to notice the goodness of God right where we are,
wherever we are.
Work is not always required.
There is such a thing as sacred idleness.
|Amy, Elise, Michael and T play some Frisbee|
|A little Rummy anyone?|
Mark and I also appreciated time with this special family,
and their fellowship and insightful counsel about transition.
With a season of change ahead for our family,
their words and encouragement were especially meaningful and timely.
Thank you, T&J!
|on the way home again|
We're thankful for the time to rest, and to be refreshed for the work ahead.
Now the final quarter of the school year has begun;
in a way, the beginning of the end of many things.
And He said to them,
“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place
and rest a while.”
