In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was barren, with no form of life; it was under a roaring ocean covered with darkness. But the Spirit of God was moving over the water. Genesis 1:1-2
We were blessed to spend a short time in Florida last weekend. When I say "short" I mean it. We stayed a total of 18 hours, 7 of which were spent sleeping. That time, however, provided a respite from our mid-American scenery and provided some serenity we can't find where we live. There is something majestic about the ocean/gulf because God is there in all His glory with His paint brush in hand. It was awe-inspiring with a beauty that cannot be matched. I took this shot with my phone from the balcony we shared with our daughter, son-in-law and their children. That is something we will do again and will definitely stay longer next time. No, we didn't drive that far for less than a day's stay. We were visiting our older son in South Alabama and took the 1 1/2 hour drive to FL just to see this. It was worth it!
