The great thing about a beach vacation is that you can do whatever you feel like, whenever you feel like, for as long as you feel like. Today Dad, Mom, Katie, and I felt like walking down the other end of the island. Our house is on the Gulf side (as apposed to the Bay side on the other side of the island) which is the best side with the waves, clean water, and clean beaches. Once we got to the end of the island, we switched over to the Bay side to walk back. The nice thing about the Bay is that its sand are harder, so Katie and I ran back. What happened was, once we finished, we waited on this fishing dock. We we're plesantly swinging on a porch swing (on the dock) watching these hilarious fish randomly fly out of the water and were still waiting. 10 minutes later, still waiting. Finally we decided to cross back over to the Gulf side (which is apparently what my parents did while we waited for them :) ) We walked for a while, and then realized we were lost. After a bit, we found our way back. :)

One of the kind of odd things that happened was (on the way to the end of the island) we found a strange object washed up on the shore. It would've been odder if we knew what it was. So Dad took this strange object back to my Uncle Jeff. Long story short, we found out that this unusual substance was crack cocaine! No joke. We were so shocked! Immediately, we called the police. He was out here pretty soon, and determined that it was infact cocaine, and it was worth about 25 to 30,000 dollars. We should have kept it :) So that is a pretty stinking fun and funny story!

We played Tennessee and I was actually a tad disappointed. But in the the end, it was a "W", so I'm sure glad about that! 23-13. It was a close one.

We leave tomorrow at about 9. This has been an amazing week!

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life

    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
