This morning was an early morning. Until I realized that the sun was already up and no one was awake. Since I already missed the sunrise, I went back to bed. It seems like every time I wake up early and go back to bed, I wake up again really late. Strange. So I woke up to a good breakfast, and was ready to make something of my day.

Originally, when we found out that we were going to an island, we knew that we needed to walk it. So, after breakfast my dad and I went on a walk. It was a great walk, too! We went for a few miles, barefoot, right by the water. Down past many beach houses, and a few hotels, and a fishing pier. (that we would have gone to, if it hadn't been closed for the season). I had an awesome time walking, talking, and laughing with my dad!

Now I'm sitting in a chair right by the water watching various family members fish off the shore. The sunset is breathtaking tonight! Isn't God so creative! We're in the middle of preparation for tonight's crab boil. (Oh and Katie's crab didn't make the cut. Considering the fact that he was rotten by now. We forgot to take him out of the cooler and put him in the freezer, so he's officially decoration for our sand castle)

Just let to let you know A. I didn't lose anything on today's walk. B. We got a new camera case (which I happen to like better) C. We have found somewhere around 50 jellyfish so far!

Florida vs. Tennessee tomorrow! Ahhh! So my dad and I made a gator out of sand today :) I'm so pumped for this game!

Well I'm going to check out how these crabs are going, dinner's going to be good tonight!

    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
