Goodbye Ordinary

I will recount the steadfast love of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has granted us. Isaiah 63:7

Newport! September 21, 2009

We just had a lovely four day vacation camping at Newport on the Oregon coast.  The girls love playing on the beach and they got to play in the sand and water to their hearts’ content!

IMG_9868We also spent time at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.  There are so many great exhibits there.  My personal favorites are the jellyfish and also the exhibits on life you find in tide pools.  What I always think about as I look at these amazing and unique creatures, is what a creative and magnificent God Who made them!

We could not have asked for better weather.  It is always a gamble at the coast, but we have found that September and even October can be great months to visit the beach.

Here are some photos from the Oregon Coast Aquarium:

If you are interested in more pictures of our trip to the beach, you can see them here in my Flickr album entitled “Newport”.
I am reading a book entitled, “A Chance to Die, The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael” by Elisabeth Elliot.  It is a thought provoking book and I have many thoughts on it I intend to blog about.  But, for now I will leave you with a quote of Amy Carmichael from the book,
“Satan is so much more in earnest than we are – he buys up the opportunity while we are wondering how much it will cost.”
It is now back to school and regular life!  Have a great week.  Lori
