Day two started earlyish at around six with toast--breakfast of champions. Then it was on to the beach for reading, getting destroyed by huge and awesome waves, long walks on the beach, lunch, shopping, and dinner.

Reading-- I am reading John Piper's When I Don't Desire God; How to Fight For Joy. The name alone intrigues me. But what I've read so far in the book is very good! I can't wait!

Getting destroyed by huge and awesome waves-- Mm salt water, getting pulled by the waves, and finally getting drug through the sand by the waves. Okay you are probably thinking that I was being sarcastic, but I say, "It's all part of this great experience!"

Ahh long walks on the beach...simply splendid!!

We'll skip the topic of lunch, because I have no idea what to say about it. :)

Shopping-- Shopping, oh the joy :) (But many of you know that I like to shop, but if it goes for longer than an hour or two, I get a bit tired of it). And this kind of shopping was super fun! It was like a marketplace, where most of it's done outside and most everything's very cool and beachy, but way too overpriced to even think of buying. Super fun!

Dinner-- Dinner was eaten in Destin, in a place called The Crab Trap. It was one of the coolest placed I've ever eaten. I was eating crab legs and sitting right by the ocean, as the sun set. Wonderfully tasty and skies that were crying out the glory of God for everyone to see. Awesome and very very fun!

    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
