From Snow to Beach

From this ...

To this ...

So full of thanks this morning ~

The beautiful 10-inch snowfall on Saturday.
A safe, uneventful trip from Omaha to Orlando the next day.
Phone call to my brother (in Akron) while transferring flights in Cincinnati.
Going from 25 degrees to 80 degrees in 6 hours.

The glistening white snow covering the brown, dead of winter.
Branches covered in white.
Listening to the sound of waves breaking on the beach.
Seagulls gliding over the expanse of the ocean.

Busy, full days before our trip.
Newsletter ready, taxes prepared, photos collected for SV history video.
Five days with my husband on the coast, for SV Directors Conf this week.
Refreshing worship, walks on the sandy white beach, meaningful connections.

"Come to Me and rest.
I am all about you, to bless and restore.
Breathe Me in with each breath."
(Jesus Calling)

"Come to Me. 
Get away with Me and you'll recover your life.
I'll show you how to take a real rest."
(Matthew 11:28)
