I witnessed this beautiful sunset on a little lake getaway last weekend. Out there, away from the city and any stress, I allowed myself to relax and be reminded that God is in control. What more of a reminder did I need than such a magnificent sunset? It's amazing the peace that you feel when you truly, fully trust your life to Him!
A few college girlfriends and I were staying at our friend Kim's parents' lakehouse in Corsicana, Texas. Kim is having a baby in September, so it was the perfect "last hoorah" before she welcomes a little boy into the world! The six of us that were there don't see each other often, so it was great to catch up on all the exciting directions our lives have gone since we graduated three years ago.
We spent the weekend enjoying the lake views and venturing into the water, relaxing in the hot tub, sipping mimosas and playing Cards Against Humanity (a hilarious, yet totally inappropriate, "adult" version of Apples to Apples). Oh, and eating. Lots of eating. Funny how that happens when you're just relaxing all day!
It had just rained the night we arrived, bringing a cool front of lower 70s temperatures and a nice breeze off the water. I just stood on the patio for a few minutes that Saturday morning, breathing in the cool air and enjoying the serenity I felt out there.
What an incredible view to wake up to.
Thanks for such a fun, restful weekend, Kim! I think we've started an annual tradition...
