A winter’s day and it’s all too dreary to stay inside. And the bed is soooo warm.  Getting up and dressed to go out almost hi-jacks the desire to escape.

“To the Bat-mobile…” and the trek to the beach begins!

Why the beach?

I love the beach on winter days.

Great service at the beach-side establishments. No rush. No crush. No people.

The fresh air blowing in off the ocean. A thick coat protects the outside and long sips of coffee to warm the inside. A deep breath… long exhales….

The sun peeks out from the clouds and the warm rays seep into the inner being.

It is so relaxing.

Rest is a good thing – even God rested:

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
Genesis 2:2

And days like today remind me:

Return to your rest, my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.
Psalm 116:7

He is… and I am… how about you?
