Parris Island--Here We Come

Thursday after lunch our family loaded up in the big white van and took off for Parris Island, SC. A friend of our family was graduating from Marine boot camp the next day at 9 AM.

We stayed in nearby Beaufort, SC. After we arrived and settled in at the hotel, we drove to Port Royal Sound. These land lubbers rarely get a chance to see the ocean. While this was not the ocean in all its wave-crashing glory, this was the best we could do with our time constraints. It is a testament of God's beauty in creation.

The top picture is my husband and youngest son. The second is a picture I snapped right after we arrived. It was nearly sundown, and the clouds and sun made a lovely view. This is the way I mentally picture the sky moments before Christ returns for His saints. The sun's rays shining to the left in the pic are the perfect place for His appearance, don't you think?
