and then it shines...

The water is rising.
As we drive, we see the canals and how they have filled, within inches of high water marks.  We have needed the rain.  Desperately.  But now, after what seems like weeks of rain on end, our souls needed the sunshine almost more so.  Saturday found us celebrating the sunshine...


We dug our toes deep into the sand and enjoyed the jazz as it danced on the breeze.  The kids flung the Frisbee back and forth until the almost-still gulf beckoned to them.  As they played on the sandbar, laughter and squeals carried across the surface, and a dolphin glided softly close to the shore, between us and them. 




And when it was time, God painted the sky...
