When my grandfather passed away two weeks ago, almost everyone in the church sent a card, messaged me on facebook, or said something to me. Everyone was so sincere. I can't begin to tell you how that made me feel. I was very close to my grandfather and was a bit emotional around his passing. I praise the Lord that I know He is in a much better place, free of pain and suffering.
Also, the Lavenders offered their beach house for John and I to spend some quality time together. They are SO generous and have continuously showered us with blessings since I moved here. They let John stay at their house whenever he came to visit...which was almost every week. Anyhow, due to their big hearts, John and I were able to relax on the beach!
There was NO ONE on the beach this day. I read The Help while John played on his iPhone, looking at football info in preparation for this next season!
Unfortunately, there were jellyfish EVERYWHERE, so we couldn't get in the water.
We also were able to fix our seafood cravings! We ate at Tacky Jacks and The Original Oyster House.
We got ready to go out to eat and I wanted to make sure and get a family picture. For my birthday, my parents got me a tripod, so I decided to put it to work. We had a bit of trouble trying to get Eli to cooperate. We took several pictures, but these were my favorite!
Eli got a bit bored...
This was our most successful!
