just down the road a piece, in paradise.

sometimes you get to hang your hat in a different place,

and take a walk in paradise.

sometimes a cup of tea in morning light can work wonders...

... or a good book and a spot of shade,

or a nap on cozy pillows,

 or a swim with friends.

 sometimes a sunset is a fragment of glory,

to remind us we are not alone.

 and sometimes treasures abound, when we least expect them.

 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows.  
James 1:17

SO happy for you guys, you finally got to hang out amongst pilars of paradise (sun, sand, wind, wood, hats, backs, books, dog, wow).

that picture of you two: ♪♫ gor-geous ♫♪!

What a beautiful place you are at. It's always good to hand your hat elsewhere every now and then.

You make me miss the ocean. I am craving a trip there this month. Perhaps it will come to fruition.

How beautiful -- I especially love the photo of that beautiful dresser with the morning light slanting on it.

Tracy said...

Thank you for taking us along with you, Leslie... This is refreshing for us just to see--lovely, tranquil images, that are like a mini-vacation in themselves. Hope you all had a beautiful time to rest, relax, rejuvenate. :o) ((LOVE & HUGS))
