Never have I ever wanted to spend so much time outside in the springtime, and yet the pollen is killing me. No really, I think it is. I spent all last week sick in bed. I got behind at work, my house was a mess, and I was just feeling sorry for myself. Once the meds finally kicked in, I realized that there is so much to be thankful for. Sometimes you just have to get ahold of those negative thoughts. Gosh, there are people who have it far worse than I ever did. I have to learn to be thankful regardless of whether I am getting my way or not. All that to say, I felt like a new person by Friday. Jacob and I left in the wee hours of the morning to see the sunrise at the beach. It was perfect. There God is in all his glory. I mean, yeah, God is everywhere, but in that stillness he whispers so much love. We had such a great day discovering new places, shopping for records and plants, drinking coffee, and just being together. I am so grateful that God uses the sea to help me regain a little clarity in a mixed up week.
