Magical tunnel


Today’s Daily Post question. “You’ve been given the ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect your home with the location of your choice — anywhere on Earth. Where’s the other end of your tunnel?”

It has to be on earth of course, that stumped me because my gut response was HEAVEN of course. I mean really, I’m ready to go!
So then I thought about where would I like to be, or who would I like to see, at the virtual drop of a hat? I asked the kids for their answers before forming mine.
My answer is this, I’d like the other end of my tunnel to be in the woods behind my best friend Geri’s house. I wouldn’t put myself right INTO her house, because that’s rude, and I wouldn’t put myself in the drive way because I’d get run over! But the woods behind Geri’s house is quite peaceful, and I could pop over for a little bit of squirrel hunting if I did that sort of thing, but otherwise I’d just walk out of the woods and head to Geri’s back door, knock a few times and wait for her to answer. I’ve been missing her quite a bit lately and just last week called and asked if she could come over (it’s a four hour drive). I was hoping she’d drop everything and head my way but she already had plans as us mommas are inclined to do, and the soonest she could come is the end of this month. Well this tunnel will solve everything won’t it! Because it goes both ways, and she can come here and swim with me and her boys can come and build sand castles and let’s not forget about sharing Corner Bakery donuts and coffee together as often as we like! And we can all go there and my boys can play with her boys in the woods, shooting arrows and bb guns, and we can cook together and scrape the skins off potatoes together and study the Bible together. Oh this tunnel is the best tunnel here on earth. It stead of face time we’d yell “tunnel time!”
But that does bring me to my final thought, I’d rather a tunnel outside of earth, to heaven. Yes, I would. I am ready and waiting for my Lord Jesus to come for me. Even so, come Lord Jesus.


Let’s walk to the beach


After being inside a large portion of the day because of rain and wind, things finally cleared up and the sun came out. It’s still blowing a good bit of wind, but it’s cooler and not humid so we are enjoying the windows wide open.

Jack and Sam joined me for a walk by the Marina and to the beach. DSC_0476 They really tried to convince me to swim with them. I declined but I assured them that I will swim with them tomorrow! DSC_0468 It’s fairly rare to see the waves crashing up on the bulkhead, it seems to do it quite a bit in the winter but only during storms during the summer time. At least, that’s my observation after a year of living here. DSC_0463 DSC_0461What did you do today?

Sunsets, flip flops, water, sky on fire


We’ve been in the house 5 days. We are still living out of our suitcases and that’s alright with us. As long as we’ve got our swimmers, a few dry towels and sunscreen the unpacking can wait.

My life, this life, my God who gave this to us. I’m blown away.


Jack stands out at the water taking pictures with my phone.




Sunset with Gazebo.

Scott had these new flip flops waiting for me since I arrived. Only shoe worn aside from running shoes.

This is our "little beach" at high tide.

The sky seems to be on fire.

I hope you enjoyed a visual peek into our evening. I’ll have more tomorrow!
