the wonder of it all

i love the beach...i love my hubs and kids more...but i love the beach. life doesn't get much more awesome than when we are all at the beach together.

i heart faces this week is beach week...and i have roughly 4,361 beachy pics i could enter, but i had to pick just one. and here it is...

the b-ster chilling on the beach...just taking in the awe and wonder of how awesome god's creation is. i remember when we were there, she asked if the ocean could be the ocean if there wasn't the wind and the water together.

i had a great teaching moment...{don't get all caught up in the technical stuff...}i told her god is like the wind...we can't see him, we can feel his presence and we are sure he's there. we are like the water. we get tossed around and we never know where we are going.

the ocean is way more vibrant and awesome with the wind in your hair. you can visit the ocean and do the ocean without wind, but it's way better with the wind in your hair and the sun on your shoulders.

i think that's what god desires from us too...we can do life without seeking him, but it's so much better and way more beautiful and fulfilling with the two together.

so, we decided that the ocean is still the ocean, but it's just way more fun when there's wind and water together!

What a wonderful teachable moment that God gave you! I pray that Ladybug and I have many, many of those moments in the course of her life.

Have a blessed day!
