Thoughts on vacation

Some observations about vacation…

1. No matter how far I go or how long I’m gone, God is there.
2. God’s creation cannot be outdone except by God Himself.
3. Even with the best of accommodations, home is best.
4. God’s color wheel is endless!
5. God sings over me no matter where I am.
6. People everywhere need and appreciate a smile and a kind word.
7. If you look for Him, you will find Him everywhere!
8. Unsweetened tea at McDonalds is universal.
9. I’m never ready to leave the beach and it’s healing warmth.
10. I’m always glad to be home and sleep in my own bed.

This morning… Our last one on vacation… I woke up with these words rolling around in my head. The melody is obscure… new and yet unformed.

I will call upon your name
I will answer to your claim
You are with me
You are near
You are my rock and my redeemer
Your word is crystal clear
You are with me
You are near
You never leave me or forsake me
Your promises are true
You are with me

I’m so thankful for this precious reminder this morning as we set out for our last leg of the drive home. We had great travel, great food, excellent accommodations, time away to rest and relax, and finally made it home safe and sound. Our dogs were happy to see us, too. I miss the sandpipers and pelicans, the salt air already. Next year.
