Sand Castles

There are 15 Waken's (well, 14 + one boyfriend) on a beach somewhere hanging out, getting a tan and doing things we wouldn't think of doing normally. What am I talking about? Glad you asked. Here are some of the things that we have done that you normally do not find us doing... -swing from a vine suspended 15 feet above a pool over looked by a 25 foot water fall (some actually fell, I mean, let go of the vine and fell into the pool). - standing 25 feet above a pool of water and jumping over the waterfall into the pool. - making sandcastles with grandkids, children and adults. - snorkeling with hundreds of fish. - boogie boarding with fins on. - surfing (more like ungraceful falling down the face of a wave). - eating more fattening food than is legal. - sleeping more in one day than you have in years. - putting together jigsaw puzzles. - playing scrabble. - taking a dinner cruise and watching the sunset over the ocean. - going to be early (like 8:30pm). - begging and finishing a novel. - just being refreshed... I found a fantastic verses from Exodus that has to do with refreshment. I think you may just be amazed at what is said about refreshment - more on that later. Taking a Sabbath is good.
