Thanks for your replies. My husband and I just returned from a short trip to the beach for some "quiet time". Winter on the beach is beautiful, and quieter than in summer. The small kitchen window on our camper looked on the sunrise over the water each morning, and it was spectacular.
Greetings Maria, what a lovely treat for both of you! Is this beach anywhere near your home?
Yes, it is near to our home; maybe 20 minutes to a half-hour drive. It is a lovely beach and as I watched the sunrise I thought of the scripture: "As a Bridegroom coming forth from His chamber..." (can't remember the scriptural reference just now for those words), but the brightness of the sun as it emerged from the horizon was like the coming of Christ -- truly magnificent! The wonder of creation is such a gift! Yet nothing can compare with Himself! He is beyond our finite sight and understanding and we can only look on Him in faith now, until the Day He Comes in Glory.
Happy Feast of the Holy Family today!
