My mom and I walked around Balboa Island a few weeks ago. What would it be like to live here, by the sea?

Show me your ways, O Lord,
teach me your paths,
guide me in your truth
and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
It's a beautiful Saturday here in Southern California. The temperature will climb to the 90's, the sky is blue. In my neighborhood (not the one above) people are out clipping bushes, and washing cars. I'm about to go into the kitchen and make a grocery list of everything we will need for the coming week. I haven't "meal planned" in a while. But today I will do it, so that next week will be easier. I'm having a birthday on Tuesday. Do I dare say it? "52"
My son had to leave home yesterday. This is a long road...the one we're on with our son. There is very little relief. But I must trust that the the long road is leading to somewhere. God certainly would not lead us on a path to nowhere. He is leading us to SOMEWHERE. And it is for our son's well-being.
