It seems to me that my blog has become a place for me to send a postcard from the paradise of the day or week this summer. How blessed am I!
This past weekend I flew to Miami with my sister and nephew to attend the wedding of my brother's oldest son. Why is it that a wedding drives home the reality of passing the torch to another generation? It's not that they weren't beginning to carry it for themselves...well, several years ago. I'm so happy for Danny and Leah, and continue to be so proud of all the nieces and nephews on both sides of our family. They are such great role models for their little cousins, and God is using them in mighty ways. They are people of influence and impact, and to me they are the evidence of a future filled with the hope that God has promised since the beginning of time.
In case you are in need of a little getaway, here are some photos of the beach and the beautiful, serene monastery where the wedding and reception took place. A little slice of heaven.
