so i thought i don’t know that somehow we would be different so i thought you and i would be that story that others would love to tell we just seem to stay in one place choosing immobility you blame me i blame you standing in the pain with you brings no light we said i do we said i’ll stay come pain or joy in loss in light we’re in the wrong fight so i thought so let’s just look into each other eyes take each other’s hand and gently remember remember love remember i do remember the vows remember together remember forgive me remember love never gives up remember i love you
Another set of images from a long walk on a windy day at Jones Beach.
Grateful to be back in New York spending time with my elderly parents. Equally grateful to take long walks at Jones Beach. I love the winter shore.
My mom and dad have been married for 62 years. They both have their physical struggles and they take care of each other. My dad takes care of my mom’s arthritic feet every morning. I felt privileged to watch him carefully wash, dry and apply topical aids on her feet. They have lived a Valentine‘s life together, and not just a Valentine’s Day. I was also reminded of what Jesus taught us. Take a moment and read the gospel of John chapter 13 today. Thanks for stopping by.
We enjoyed a Thanksgiving Day walk at the always beautiful Jones Beach State Park.
Soul distancing: the practice of separating your soul from the day to day rush the deadline driven exhaustion the anxiety saturated social media the identity robbing expense of living for someone's approval the heart hardening fallout of unforgiveness the countless heart deadening diversions and instead connecting to whatever it is that helps you to s l o w d o w n a walk on the shore... a hike... sitting in stillness... prayer... coffee and a good book... you may discover what you are really living for and decide to change course you may discover what you really worship and decide to reach higher in the affections of your heart and mind you may discover an ocean of tears that were held back by your hardness becasue you need to be right or you won't let it go or you refuse to forgive or because you know you need to confess and make it right you may discover in the stillness the voice of God
the songs are breaking on the shores of my story reminding me of family friends and love gifts of Grace are all around in every wave i hear the sound of Your love and care the songs are breaking on the shores of my story reminding me of things undone hurt and tears seem to abound in every wave i hear the sound of my lack of love dear God forgive me the songs are breaking on the shores of my story reminding me of my dearest love high school days then wedding day home and kids all gifts from above in every breath i breathe your love so grateful for your love the songs are breaking on the shores of my story reminding me i soon must leave so may i sing to my Father above so may i sing to those i love may He find me ready to walk on the shore of my new home no more tears and endless Light faith hope and the greatest Love
It’s wonderful to see the Jones Beach boardwalk come to life as New York slowly exits out of pandemic social restrictions.
I really should stop in and eat here some time instead of just taking exterior photos! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoying the view at Jones Beach.
