After a glorious week in West Palm Beach topped with a couple of days in Cocoa Beach (where the above photo of my three beach bums was taken) we are back home.
I’m afraid there won’t be many photos to share, as we forgot our camera. (Yes, I did that and I ask: what kind of dingbat forgets to bring her camera on vacation???) So the only pics we have were taken with our phones, with varying degrees of quality. It kind of doesn’t matter, though, because we didn’t do a whole lot of photo-worthy things. It was just a beautiful week of downtime.
I knew I needed a vacation, but I didn’t realize how much until I was actually away from here. Look for a column and possibly another blog post detailing the blessings of this time away and what this vacation taught me about my priorities and how I spend my time.
Because honestly—there is nothing like getting away from it all to clarify one’s view of life. And I thank God for broadening my previously myopic vision.
While sitting by the beach, reading my YouVersion Bible, I came across this sentence from The Message translation of Proverbs 8. It sums up what God taught me last week:
“Mark a life of discipline and live wisely;
don’t squander your precious life.”
