Splashing By The Sea

"...He gave the sea its boundary 
so the waters would not overstep His command...
He marked out the foundations of the earth."
Proverbs 8:29

We are humbly blessed to be enjoying part of summer's homestretch in Ocean City, New Jersey, one of our most favorite places on earth. God's beauty and the simple pleasures of the Jersey Shore make it the quintessential summer vacation for our family.  Summer's delights are fully satisfied once we have splashed our toes in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean from the beaches of Ocean City, NJ. 

Boogie boarding, sand castle building, wiffle ball, relaxing on beach chairs.  Kohr's soft ice cream, boardwalk rides, Johnson's caramel popcorn.  Marathon Monopoly games, puzzle building, simple meals.

And quiet time. Lingering quiet time with the Lord. 

The other morning as I was sitting with His Word, the sun shone brightly through the window and lit up The Lamp Unto My Feet.  The morning sun warmed me as I soaked in His Word.  God is so good. My heart is thankful. 
Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105
The unfolding of Your words gives light;
it gives understanding to the simple.
Psalm 119:130

I pray you are enjoying these August summer days and that whatever prayerful wishes you have had for your summer have come true!
