It has been a beautiful two days here on the Mendocino Coast. Our family has been thoroughly enjoying it. Hubby and I filled up the wading pool for Mr. C yesterday morning. He discovered a cup and a shovel and went straight to cooking. After Mr. A got out of preschool we headed to Jug Handle State Reserve for a little fun in the sun. Mr. C put his toes in the ocean for the first time. Mr. A had fun running from the waves. Hubby helped build a sand castle and mommy relaxed with her toes in the sand. I also was able to catch some pretty good photos of a dog who was swimming and playing in the water near us. God is good isn't He? When I look at the ocean I am reminded of all of the beautiful things that He has given us to enjoy while we are on this earth. God should be glorified daily for the things He created because we get to enjoy them. We should praise His name for creating the world and then being so loving and kind to create us as well. I strive to remember all of God's goodness and beauty everyday. Going to the beach with my family reminds me that we are to give honor, glory, and power to our Lord and God. Revelation 4:11, You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being. Let us also remember that our children are a gift from God as well. He lent the to us for a time so that we might teach them His ways. We must teach them to give God Glory as well. We should trips into nature as teaching tools. We should explain to our children that God created the ocean and the beach. It's because of His power that we get to play in the sand and water. Okay well that's enough for now. I hope you are having a wonderful week.
