Day 8. Bye beach, bye house, bye Seagrove, Seaside, Watercolor, and Destin. -    "Only one life, twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last" 
 
Today is day eight, and I hate to say what that means. It means that in a bit, we're going to clean up, pack up, go out to eat for the last time, and head home. I have loved this vacation so incredibly much, it's pretty hard to leave. But I'm "falling on my knees in worhsip", thanking God that I have such an amazing parents to go home to. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have my parents!

So what happened yesterday for our schedule, breakfast, beach, lunch, beach, house, and beach again. We really wanted it (the last day) to be filled with trips to the oceans. And thank  goodness we did!

Last night after our final trip to the ocean, we came home and Mrs. Cindy put on a seafood feast. It was very tasty! And afterwards we just hung around and laughed until we couldn't breathe. It was great, but I got super tired and went to bed :(. And to make matters worse, I missed the sunrise. I came down late at 6:08 and looked outside and the sky was still pink and orange and such. I ran upstairs to those who wanted to see the last sunrise and woke them up. We came outside and...the sun had already risen : / . I don't know when we're leaving, but I think we're going to Harry T's for lunch. I think that's going to be quite good, and a lot like The Crab Trap. We're picking up Nathan (Josh, Tyler, and Emily's cousin) in Georgia when we go through, so that'll be fun too. There are some upsides to today, but i'm still wearing black. ;)

    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
