On Thursday, Andrew and I placed our children and this document in the hands of trusted caregivers
and we hit the road for some time off. We were, perhaps, a little gleeful.
(And, Abbi, I’m really sorry about Andrew picking you up and swinging you around the room when you walked in the door to babysit. I can’t imagine what came over him…)
When we arrived at our destination and I walked out on our back porch and saw this, I sat down and had myself a good cry. Four years was a long time to wait for this vacation, but it was totally worth it.
And now you’ve never seen two more relaxed people… Nothing quite like a beach trip to remind you of your own insignificance and how Powerful and Mighty is The One who creates all things.
2 Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity.
3 The seas have lifted up, O LORD,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
4 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea—
the LORD on high is mighty.
