You can even ride a pirate ship to get there! We have never done it but I have heard it is worth it!
The boys were dumb-founded by the size of this boat. One of them said seeing it was their favorite part of the whole trip!
Watching God work in this child's heart may be the most visible evidence of God I have ever seen. It blows me away to hear him pray. I am constantly learning from him.
So, that is what I told the girls.
And finally, Lake, "my curly-headed baby." His hair was so curly at the beach that everyone stopped me to talk about it. It matches his personality. Mom lovingly calls him... a MANIAC. He is our class clown. He loves to make people laugh- especially my mom. He is a little obsessed with her. He still doesn't talk. He is a man of two words.
Then, he started stuffing coasters down her shirt before she knew what was happening.
We were both so tickled that we couldn't stop him. The more we laughed, the more determined he was to keep doing it.
I love my mom. So do my kids.
Another one of my favorite things to do is to walk on the beach and say a verse we learned about a year ago. God's creation is just so majestic, worship is a natural response! It is such evidence of His greatness when you see His power and beauty on display in all the things He has made- even the fascinating jellyfish.
Pause the music if you want to hear Bubba say it.
"Stand up and praise the Lord your God, for he lives from everlasting to everlasting!...Praise his glorious name! It is far greater than we can think or say. You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve and give life to everything, and all the angels of heaven worship you."
This post took forever!
Blogging really is my addiction/journal/scrapbook/therapy. ;)
