I don’t want to turn into one of those bloggers who write big apologies after a lengthy absence and promise to be more faithful. But here I am, feeling slightly foolish for abandoning the blog for half a month while life just happened. But happened it did, and when I think of what we all accomplished this month (finishing off the basement), and all the visitors :), plus head colds and spring break…. it shouldn’t surprise me that this whole blog venture got put to the side. Meanwhile I have been mentally composing various posts, of which I am sure I will forget most before they get published.
Let me start by sharing that we had a brief vacation in the third week of April to Montauk, a town at the very end of Long Island, NY. On our first evening there we went for a walk along the cliffs above the Atlantic Ocean during what I like to think of as the golden hour. You know the time of day when the sun is sinking and casts that glorious warm light on everything! You can imagine all your woes away… everything is golden then. Does anyone else get a thrill when you’re outside and the slanting rays make all the colors vibrant, and beauty runs rampant? This is the best time of day to take pictures. Even a total point and shoot amateur like me can capture some of the wonder.
Isn’t God’s creation beautiful? We need to remember to send our pleasure in His world back to Him and give Him thanks for all this beauty.
