We had a bbq, we drove by old neighborhoods, we went for scenic drives down Worth Ave in Palm Beach (window shopping only, of course)
The sunrise is always a beautiful reminder. It reminds us that each day is a new day and a fresh opportunity. It reminds us that, despite all of the ugliness in the world, there is a still beauty. It reminds us that the simple sound of the ocean waves can drown out any other noise in the world. It reminds us that we are not as big as we think we are -- that there is something much, much mightier than us. It reminds us that all of the hurt, tiredness, pain, sadness, negativity from yesterday has been washed away.
Most importantly, it reminds us that we all need a moment to BE STILL ... and Listen. We cannot always hear God when we have too many distractions around us and even though the sounds of the ocean can fill your ears, it is amazing what you may hear. It is only in these moments that you can truly "Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him..." Psalm 37:7 (ESV).
