A Day in the Sun


Last Friday, the sun was finally shining after two solid weeks of rain.

It was glorious.

Julia and I decided to seize the day and fully experience the beauty of now.

We started our day by taking our dog Buddy to the town beach.

We dearly love Buddy…but he is the most neurotic dog we have ever known.

Shortly after I took this photo, before we even made it to the beach, Buddy got sick.

He doesn’t get out much.

The view from the beach is lovely:

Buddy eventually got into the swing of things:

However, when he began to frantically search for some grass to eat, we knew our time at the beach was done. (This is what Buddy does when his stomach is upset). The beach was just too much excitement in one day for him.

He collapsed on the back seat floor, totally wiped out and ready to go home and nap:

He barely moved the rest of the day.

Armed with cameras and a cooler, we headed back out to discover whatever beauty we could find…

After awhile, we decided to eat lunch on a picnic table by the lake…and it was a healthy lunch indeed… 🙂

Life is so precious.

You don’t need a special occasion to enjoy the day.

We simply walked out the front door in search of the beauty all around us..and we found it…along with laughter, sweet time spent together, and the sheer joy of being alive.

Wherever life finds you today, ask the Lord to open your eyes to the wonder that He has placed all around you.

It is there if you have eyes to see.

“There is no such thing in anyone’s life as an unimportant day.”—Alexander Woollcott

    aw-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-Poor Buddy. He looks so perky and happy walking on the beach.

    If I was a dog, I would be Buddy. Sometimes, just the thought of leaving the comfort of home makes my tummy topsy turvy too!
