Remember and Celebrate

March 29, 2014


the mornings and evenings

We just returned from two weeks in Florida, watching the early morning sunrises off the Atlantic Coast.
March of 2008, we also spent time on the Gulf coast of Florida and experienced the evening sunset each day.

Oh God,
Nothing says “rejoice” like a
glorious sunrise and peaceful sunset.
And it all “happens”
by Your power
for our enjoyment.
And it’s all grace.

Linking this weekend with
Diedra Riggs and The Sunday Community, Scrpture & A Snapshot

    Florida coast sunrises are breathtaking! I don’t usually get up early while on vacation, but when we are in Florida I make sure to get up for the sunrise! Beautiful reminders of God’s glory.

      yes, it was a wonderful time. Last time this year my dad had to come live with us….and we had not been away from the house together for more than a few hours at a time. My husband’s brother in law came to stay wtih my dad since i hve no other siblings anymore. The time away was wonderful and I love florida in march!

    I grew up going to the beach nearly everyday. Have lived on the Atlantic Coast and panhandle of Florida and I very much love the sunrises and sunsets too. This is a fantastic photo. Visiting from “Scripture and a Snapshot’

      oh to live on the beach, be close to the water. This past week i was standing on the beach in North Miami Beach, asking God for a fresh sense of his presence, right then….and i heard the waves and it was like he said, I keep sending the waves, over and over and over – like me love it just keeps coming. I decided this spring I wil try to get to Lake Michigan at least every 4-6 weeks. it feed my soul. thanks for stsopping by donna

    Beautiful photo! It is so true, whether the sun is rising or setting, there is such beauty and it turns our thoughts to Him! So glad I stopped here from Scripture & a Snapshot this morning. Have a blessed Sunday!
