Serving in Costa Rica for almost three years, we have yet to enjoy the beach as a family, until now. Our hearts were longing for a time of refreshment and you gave us a present wrapped in your creation, drenching us in your love and beauty. A wonder filled with tide pools, waves, sand castles, and kayak expeditions.
We fell asleep to the sound of gentle waves. We awoke to the fresh scent of a new day. Hammocks to lounge in, tide pools to explore, sand castles to build and time to linger in Your presence. You poured your peace and love into our family. Tears of thankfulness slipped from my eyes as we left. You promised I would take the peace and the rest with me. I have. Your best gifts we carry in our hearts as reality, not just as memory.
