Sometimes you must take time to enjoy the little things...Life tends to pass us by and we take for granted all of our surroundings and don't take time to step back and look at the beauty that the good Lord has put right before our eyes....Today I took that time with my mother. I am so grateful that she is still in my life. I think sometimes I take that for granted...THINKING SHE WILL ALWAYS BE HERE.
We both got in the car today and just drove...we left Mont Belvieu and drove to Winnie--then to High Island--then to Bolivar...As I was driving to the Bolivar ferry it saddened me to think of how the Bolivar Peninsula once looked...beach houses everywhere. It is slowly building up after Hurricane IKE, but I don't think we will ever forget the devastation that IKE caused. The one thing that I knew that didn't change was the Bolivar Lighthouse. I have passed that lighthouse a million times. I never took time to think how many storms that it weathered.
I couldn't help but think of the following scripture:
Psalm 119:105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
Thank you LORD for Lighting my path each and every day.
