It’s been a few weeks since my last entry. We just got back from a great week of vacation at Edisto Beach. After a long, but amazing summer in youth ministry at Morningside – Ashley and I headed with the boys (and granna & pop) for some needed rest and relaxation. It was so great to spend a week reconnecting with Ashley and playing with the boys. Anderson loved the sand and wanted us to bury him often. Ellis had his first experience in the ocean and didn’t seem too moved by the experience. He did, however, enjoy sleeping in under the tent on his blanket while we played with Anderson on the beach. Ministry is amazing and God is doing great things in our lives and in Spartanburg – but times of retreat are always needed to refocus. We enjoyed our Edisto Escape while it lasted!
