Nothing can be better than riding bikes on the beach at sundown! There is something so special about seeing the sun dip below the horizon and the long shadows change on the rippling waters moment by moment. Soon the light is gone and a new illumination begins. The light of the moon.
Walking in life together has brought us through many many sunrises and sunsets in life. Some have been wonderful to travel through. Some have been quite scary and dark. Something about this evening reminds me of our walks together through 30+ years now. Do we have life all worked out now? No. Do we know what is going to happen next? No. But we do have a secret about our life to share with you........ you see there are not two of us in our relationship - there are actually three! My husband, me and then there is Jesus. And He is the One who is really in charge of our lives. Together my husband and I try to follow in His footsteps.
How fun to ride along and chase the waves on a bike at night. It's warm but cooling breezes are flowing. The tide is coming in, but we can ride quickly away from the waves when they get too close. The sand is wet, but firm enough to hold bike tires. It's dark but the light of the moon is enough to see by. Get my drift? You may be riding at night right now - but provisions have already been made to give you another perspective also - are you looking for it?
By the darkened sky and the moonlit sand we pedal our bikes enjoying the quiet. You know what is wonderful about midlife? We have raised our family and enjoy the fruit (grandchildren) and are still young enough to have a life all over again. It's better than being a young married couple just starting out. Just think..... how much fun you can really have at this age!! Have you really thought about it?
Tomorrow begins a new day full of adventure and joy. This evening marks one to hold in my memory bank. Look at the moon - and then look at the orbs in this picture. Interesting isn't it?
Wonder which orbs are more important? The round moon? Or the unexplained orbs here. Some believe orbs in a picture are angels around about us..........
