Need a vacation?

It's that time of year . . . You know, when our to-do list takes up multiple single space pages and more items are added than removed each day. When simpler sounds better, but choosing what to eliminate seems to take more time than just doing it all. Need a little break? I probably took too long of one (10 days of forgetting absolutely everything that needed to be done back home in the next two weeks), but maybe a little relaxation would do you good.

God created an amazing world that brings so much peace when we sit and enjoy it. So, grab a cuppa, turn on some soft music, and relax with some images straight from God's art gallery. Mountains, waves, beaches, flowers, and waterfalls. Ready to feel that sand between your toes?

He alone stretches out the heavens
and treads on the waves of the sea.
~Job 9:8~

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
~Isaiah 58:11~

Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea-- the LORD on high is mighty. Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O Lord.
Psalm 93:4,5

He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
~Psalm 107:29~

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From whence shall my help come?
Psalm 121:1

Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
~Luke 12:27

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!
~Luke 12:28~

Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.

~Isaiah 55:2,3~
