Birthday BLESSINGS...

My birthday this year included a surprise ocean getaway! At Ocean Shores, we strolled the beaches, worked out in the hotel exercise room, swam in the pool and hot tub, and other tourist activities! I found 3 sand dollars and joked we were on our way to paying off our hotel bill!

We saw the remains of somebody's sand castle crumbling on the shore as the ocean reclaimed its territory.

We enjoyed a delightful birthday dinner, complete with snicker cheesecake and a candle for me, and carrot cake for him (of course!). While we ate, we watched the sunset and let me SHOW you what God did for my birthday blessing (scroll down!)

WOWWEEE...Can't God do good things for us? What a blessing!
