MOTORCYCLING ON AN ISLAND

Milton, here:

Today we made a quick trip up to Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island with Terry and Sandra, Kristy's brother and sister-in-law. They have relatives there. When Kristy was growing up, their mother would take her children to visit family and they enjoyed playing with cousins. Today, they pointed out places where they did things as children that brought back lots of memories.

Childhood reflections of good memories are sweet to the mind—thoughts of good times with cousins and family, friends and those dear. They went swimming and got ice cream cones. They played childhood games, and enjoyed quaint Fernandina Beach.

A couple of years ago Kristy and I went to Fernandina for a two day get-a-way and stayed at the Florida House Bed and Breakfast Inn. It is the oldest operating hotel in Florida. That trip was one of the most enjoyable times we have ever had as a couple getting away all by ourselves. We left all our cares in the drive way of our house and didn't give them a thought until we returned.

We rode a moped all over Fernandina. When we first got on it, Kristy said, "Slow down. Slow down."

I said, "If I go any slower, we'll fall over." Ha. I guess she wasn't so sure of my motorcycling abilities. It would only go about 34 mph. Not much speeding going on there.

After a moment or so she got used to how I was driving and off we went making more cherished memories.

We've had so much fun together. Life has been good to us.

Interesting metaphor there--if we go too slowly, we fall over. I'm thinking that over. Hmm.

Here it is: Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

On the way to that, I found all these! Don't you love how those big, ancient men just raved over our God!

No tipping over, here! LOL

You'll probably have to copy and paste the address into the address bar.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Praying, praying--with all my heart--for you, in the mighty name of Jesus....

Dear Krsity and Milton,
So glad you were able to get away to Amelia Island. I remember Kristy talking about it. I think we proposed an anthology set there.

Last night we were with friends renewing their vows and celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful time reflecting on God's faithfulness and their love for each other. We will celebrate our 30th anniversary later this year. How many years have you been married? When is your anniversary?

Sweet memories are a comfort and encouragement. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

We love you and are praying for you today.
Blessings,
Carrie
