Every once in a while it is good to get away from home to a place where I can relax and rejuvenate. I do this when my parents come to the beach. I often come here just sit around with them and talk or go for walks with my step mom. When I am here I can sit on the patio and listen to waves on the beach or go into my room open the window and listen to the waves. I love these times with them. Maybe it is not for the relaxation that I come but to share the company of my dad and my step mom. They are both very special to me. I love spending time with them and just talking or watching TV. It is a great escape for me.
Life can get me down by the many things I commit to do. I have a problem with saying No sometimes. So I busy myself with this and that and I tell myself I am working for the Lord or furthering my career. So I am so busy I do not have time to breathe. I do not want to be so busy that I miss moments with my family but I also want to work for the Lord. So lately I have been spending some time with God just spending time and trying to listen to the voice of my Lord as He leads me in life. As I sit here and listen to the ocean I want to thank my Lord and Savior for the the opportunity to spend time here at the beach with my wonderful dad and terrific step mom. I love them both more than I can say. Thank you Lord for letting them be a part of my life. I promise I will never take them for granted.
