Time is the most valuable asset that we have, and it always seems to be so scarce. We realize that we have to “make” time for the things that are of greatest priority, and let the things that are of less importance fade away. Erin and I have been waiting for a time where we could get away and be free from the busyness of everyday life. The Lord worked it out that we could spend some time in the sunny state of Florida. Erin knew of a place in the panhandle that was private, little known, and absolutely gorgeous…and she was right! We have been enjoying our time to the fullest by just being together.
Talking is one of our highlight’s. Though it may sound super simple, we have found that communication is a key in staying close in our relationship. It’s amazes me how the little things in life can distract us from having meaningful communication with each other.
This place is truly beautiful. One of our favorite things has been to sit along the beach and watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico…to smell the fragrant salty air, and watch as the last traces of sunlight reflect off of the surf, slipping into twilight. The sounds of the waves rolling onto the white, sandy beaches and the cries of the seagulls, create a very peaceful atmosphere. We could’t be happier sitting there together.
This time alone has given us a renewed love for each other, taught us more about each other, given us a vision for the months to come.
Psalm 105:4 “Seek the Lord, and His strength: seek His face evermore.”
