digging amongst the spoils

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not;
remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

Epicurus


(a plover scavagers for tasty morsels along the gulf / Julie Cook / 2018)

They will stretch out their hands in it,
as swimmers stretch out their hands to swim.
God will bring down their pride
despite the cleverness of their hands.

Isaiah 25:11

    I love your quote. There is so much truth in it. How often have I missed the beauty of a moment sighing for something else, only to get it later and be longing for yet another “something.” Excellent reminder to be thankful for God’s blessings!

    Glad you made it to the beach Julie. We woke to snow again this morning, closely followed by rain so most of it has now gone. I need a trip to the beach soon!

    • Well, according to the Farmer’s almanc—that old tried and true peroidical that perdicts weather, planting and harvesting—we are not done with the snow let along cold weather—it’s nice at home this weekend—with “nice” being relevant—it is near 60 degrees F—here in Florida its breezy but upper 60’s and the sune is shining—rain and storm tomorrow, right in time for heading back home!

    Beach looks white enough to be snow. For moment that is what I thought it was. In a winter frame of mind, I guess.

  4. Amen! Thank you for the reminder, Julie

    Judging from the picture, you found some warmth after all. Enjoy.

  6. So true! Thank you! Looks like your trip is turning out beautifully! I’m a tad envious 😉 Wish I could join you. Huge hugs! ❤
