Tom and I are away for a 24 hour getaway at the beach.
He got an early check-in which gave us time to rest awhile before dinner. Our meal was at a local favorite called Millie’s, that uses local meats and produce and it was obvious why they have 5 stars with hundreds of reviews. The food was so fresh!
When we returned to our hotel it was chilly and the fire pits were going out by the pool. We couldn’t resist and bundled up with warm clothes, beanies and blankets and snuggled up in the Adirondack chairs to relax. The hotel provided s’mores kits upon check-in that we used and enjoyed on this perfect night under the stars.
I happened to see the half-moon rising around 1 a.m. and then the sun rising over the water at 7:15 a.m. The only word that came to mind was, “faithful”. God faithfully causes both the moon and sun to rise every.single.day, and He has since He first said, “Let there be light!”
Our time is about to come to an end here at the beach, but we have one more stop to anticipate—breakfast! My husband enjoys food, but breakfast out is what we did on the day he proposed to me. So it is always special to us.
We feel as if we’ve been gone much longer than 24 hours. When was the last time you and your spouse enjoyed one night away? you may need it more than you know. It’s worth the effort.
