Beach.Ocean.Boardwalk.Family.Friends.

"Then they...made for the beach."
Acts 27:40

I am on vacation at the beach with "my peeps"!
Thanks for visiting. Sorry I missed you!
Happy Fourth of July Week!

As God's perfect timing would have it, one of our sister churches (a few blocks from where we are staying at the shore) is having a baptism at the beach while we are at the shore. Our cherubs have prayerfully asked to be baptized in the Atlantic Ocean in Ocean City, New Jersey, on Sunday, July 5th, by one of our friends who is the pastor there. Our hearts are so thankful to the Lord. He is our anchor of hope. "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf."

Hebrews 6:19-20

"...there on the beach we knelt to pray." Acts 21:5

While I am on vacation, please visit my lovely friend Heather at Our Little Lady Bugs (click here), who is celebrating her 200th blog post with a give-away!

I'm so excited for you & your family!!! Wow! Please take photos. What a blessing.

My husband & I were baptized last November, and then my oldest was earlier this year. My youngest is still a bit too young.

Have a wonderful 4th vacation, and praise the Lord!
