This past weekend we had no plans and a beautiful Saturday, so we took off and ran away to the beach for the afternoon.
Apparently we weren't the only ones with that brilliant idea since traffic down there was CRAZY! We took a lunch detour...
...and had some yummy seafood, then headed for the beach. It was gorgeous! We walked for a while and turned around and walked back.
Stuck our toes in the frigid water and enjoyed just being away. It was bliss. A perfect moment God gave us in the midst of the crazy.
Day trips for us are always a blast. We connect, we reconnect, we catch up, we talk about minor things, we talk about major things. And we blast music and sing at the top of our lungs (this time to Chris Tomlin's new album, Burning Lights. For real, if you have not yet listened/bought/repeated hearing this album, go do it RIGHT NOW. I'll wait...).
We plan. We pray. Whatever we need, God works it out on road trips. We LOVE them. We do not like sitting still that long, but that's about it. For us, we'll take off when we get the chance. It's therapeutic for sure.
And it made for the perfect day. Just what was needed.
