Beach Blessings

THANKFUL THURSDAY...I truly am grateful for the days that Hubbie and I had to get away to the beach. Yes, God's majestic hand of creation is very evident along the shores of the ocean...and a genuine sense of serene calms your soul and really lends itself to drawing closer to Him....and I appreciate all of that from our trip. However, God really blessed our time to be away...to be together without all the details "of life" that so easily steal our time and zap our energy. This new phase of "empty-nesting" is a learning experience - as with all the phases of life - but God is showing us the blessings - and even some of the rewards.





I am so thankful to have this "hunk" :) to spend this next phase of life with..........

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    You are right on, empty nest is really not a bad thing, but a good thing, and a time to step our relationship with our hubbies a notch or two. They love all that extra attention. So happy that you both had such a nice getaway. Those are priceless and much needed times of reminder of the fact that there was a we before the family!!
    Thanks for the times you come by and leave such sweet comments.
    They are very appreciated and fun
    to recieve. Hope yo have a great day. Blessings, Nellie

  2. Awe! Look at that cute picture of Dad :-) He's just so handsome :-)

    Glad you and Dad are enjoying your time together Jen. It's funny because Bob and I are on the completely opposite spectrum with just now multiplying with children and all we crave for is time together, just the two of us. I guess one day we'll be in your shoes and we'll wish for these crazy times again! :-)

    Love ya!

  3. Those are great pictures, Jennifer! So glad that you can look at your "empty nest" right now and see God's hand in it. Sometimes we fail to keep the right perspective, so thank you for reminding me to look for God's hand in today...and tomorrow...
