Moments in Michigan
It’s been a while since we were able to get away–just the two of us. We’ve been away with others, or for conferences, or Josh’s wedding last year.
The past 2 years have been stressful for me, writing two books back to back, and for Ed constructing many large paver projects. We needed some time to relax, put the phones and computers away.
Off we went to St. Joesph, Michigan to capture what felt like stolen moments out of a too busy life.
The first thing to great us in the small town were lots of fun farm animals. This one caught my attention. I happen to love goats and this one has pages of books written by teen mothers learning to read to their children. I think, books, children and moms reading to them are one of God’s special moments.

We spent the days walking the beach, piers to three light houses and watching lots of little children who made us laugh. One small boy licked a window by a chair at the coffee shop so his sister wouldn’t want to sit in the chair he watned!

One night we walked the beach and waited for the sunset. It was hidden by a cloud. It didn’t matter. The night was special. The lake lapping on the shore, holding my Ed’s hand, toes squishing in the sand. Later the stars came out and we stood there gazing in awe. We can’t see the stars where we live, too many lights keep the sky bright.

The trip was too short, but we are thankful for the time we had to relax, the moments when the phone didn’t ring interrupting a conversation, perfect weather and a slower pace. It’s good to get away even if only for a moment.
