On Labor Day Brian and I took a day trip to the coast. By leaving at 3am we arrived at sunrise and got to experience one of my favorite things, sun rays streaming through the coastal forest. This time though I almost missed them. I was pressing on down the trail, intent on showing Brian a new overlook I’d found on a previous trip, when behind me I heard him say in an awestruck voice, “Look at that.”

I turned back to see this happening behind us:

Isn’t it all to easy to get so focused on a certain goal that we miss the unexpected and unplanned for blessings that God has waiting along the path? This was a good reminder to me to slow down and enjoy the journey–literally and figuratively.

Have a blessed weekend everyone!
