Tuesday of last week was our first trip to the beach in weeks and our house is only one short block to the malecon. Things just have gotten in the way but especially the stinker of a flu we both had put a damper on our beach time. We made a total of three trips and on the weekend gave the visitors the entire beach to themselves as we stayed home to relax on our porch.
While sitting with our feet planted in the sand, the water gently lapping at our toes. looking out on a gentle surf, blue sky and total peace, I came to a realization. If our Sweet Lord took me today this is what I would want heaven to be. I am content just to sit watching the water. I do not require a great deal of outside stimulation at this point in my life.
Yes, we love the theater, fancy dinners, clubs and exciting nightlife. In our younger days we belonged to the Burt Reynolds dinner theater in Palm Beach and The Hollywood Playhouse in Hollywood, Fl. We made several trips to NYC to see shows like Pippin and Two Gentlemen from Verona these in particular were two of our favorites. We have dined in fancy restaurants with silver service, we had memberships at Williams Island and Turnberry Yacht clubs in South Florida. We danced at the discos, eaten stone crabs at Joe’s Stone Crab next to Don Johnson…I could go on and on but I will not bore you. What I am getting at is that our life was enough, we have accomplished what we have set out to accomplish and are truly content just to sit and watch the waves roll in and out.
That is a good thing!
Life is good, God is good and on this Holy Week we wish to share our contentment and joy with all of you. Be blessed and share a bit of happiness with someone else today!
