weekend fun

a weekend filled with love.

my husband and i woke on saturday morning
and went to the near by bay to watch the tail end
of a sandcastle contest.
we went with our daughter and grandson...

after that we went up the road a bit
and walked/hiked down to the ocean
on a wooded trail.

we ended the weekend
by a good old riverside baptism,
yesterday after church;

nineteen people from our congregation
and our sister congregation,
were baptized.
what a beautiful thing to witness!

today i woke to rain slapping against
the windows & laundry piled sky high.
but, the joy from the weekend past
will carry me.

i will hold on to & cling to happiness!

i find that for me,
the good always outweighs
the ugly. :)

i look for and appreciate the good
that is in each day.
sometimes, i have to admit... it is harder than others
but, i do see the good!

so today, i pray today that you too
have joy that you can fall back on.

when the ugly seems to
be overwhelming.
when it seems like your back is against that wall;

i hope you can seek and find joy in your life.

What a beautiful post about your weekend! Loved your pictures. Wise words.
I like the saying 'Make the most of what you've GOT! And the least of what you've NOT!'
Have a wonderful week - no matter what!!

What a beautiful way to spend a weekend! And an outdoor baptism, too. I haven't been to an outdoor baptism since I was a very young girl.
