Sometimes you just need a change of scenery...

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.
Psalm 145:2-4

Most of you know we are not really spur of the moment vacationers-for the packing issue alone...but we needed a break so we packed up and headed to the beach for a few days.
The babies were about as sick of Poplar, and doctor's offices as I was. Murphy and Madden smiled and laughed more than they have for a while. They had such a good time, they stayed on the beach from about 9 to 5 everyday, they even had lunch in the sand! I really think they take after their daddy and me, we don't like winter and the more sun the better. God blessed our little getaway with beautiful weather and the most perfect temperatures.
Murphy made friends all over the beach, it was so great to see him getting be carefree and enjoy this time. I am not sure I am more rested from our getaway, but extra help and 4 mindless days were the prefect way to regroup.
My babies are refreshed and we are ready to get some of the upcoming challenges behind us. Looking at the ocean and the magnitude of God's creations, affirms more than ever, that God can handle us. We are blessed beyond comprehension, and our little trip was such a special reminder. I got to read a couple of wonderful books about God's grace, we thank Him for keeping us safe and letting us regroup just when we needed it, what an amazing gift.

That's so nice. I wish we had been there at the same time. We just got back from Sandestin yesterday. It would have been fun to hang out with you guys. I'm so glad you had a great time!
