One of my favorite days in a long time.
Having to struggle a bit (so small in comparison to many but for us still rough at times) in our daily lives island side makes this time as a family even more special, even more of a gift. Struggle makes joy sweeter. I have a new sense of gratitude for all things big and small ….like fabulously gooey feta cheese and amazing gorgeous unspoiled mountains rising out of the ocean…….things that cause praise to rise in my gut and celebration in my soul y’all!
Then we stopped at Boulders Beach…
there was picnicing with penguins, swimming in our clothes, gathering seaweed in abundance, burning our noses, and chatting with others on holiday
we continued on through amazingly gorgeous landscape for the best viewing of the city of Cape Town…overlooking the city with some of my fav people…
ok me too….
J took this video on his phone….you can hear the strong wind, the beautiful singing, and see the joyful dancing and stunning views….
We made it back with sunburned faces and dirty cars and exhausted kids but this was an amazing day. As we were driving the home stretch in the car we were blaring praise music and Jason and I both started crying. Because we were so overwhelmed with gratefulness for our lives, for God’s creation, His kindness, His provision to allow our family to experience this all. Everything was stunning. We are small…God is big.
