lasting forever.

its summer. which means burnt behinds and lazy days on the beaches.
which means rainbow umbrellas large enough for a small family. and days when it would be okay if they lasted forever.
summer water here is just cool enough for swimmin, but but too hot for it to be uncomfortable. i think the right word is "perfect".

today's finds of course include shells, but it was the first day i did not do anything productive. homework, housework. it was weird. i haven't done this in a really long time.
i feel lazy and perhaps a little bit guilty, but i did do a load of laundry.
it has yet to be folded.
its good, these times at the beach, these lazy summer days. they are needed periodically. i'll look back on them and wonder why i worried about anything. why i felt like the world was ending, all too often.

a saying rings through my ear, nothing ever lasts forever. things may be bad for right now, but nothing ever lasts forever.
however, if today's beach day could, i would be okay with it. i jumped in the crystal clear water and spread my arms and legs out and just floated. it was cool, breezy, and warm all at the same time. a moment passed and i thought.
you know what, i would be okay with drifting out to sea right now. forever.

I'm a sister, a daughter, a student, an aspiring museum exhibit developer, an Auntie Nattles to two precious babes, and a Nanny Nats to others. Above all, I am a Christ-follower. A sister, a friend, a lover, a possession, a daughter, and a woman, redeemed and accepted by the gracious and forever love of Christ. The purpose of this blog is to illustrate the latter and paint a picture for you and I to recognize and enjoy the mysterious, glorious, and timely wonders of the Lord among you all. Then Joshua said to the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you." Joshua 3:5
