This morning is my last morning here in sunny Cortez, Florida. Mom and I are going to squeeze in a few more hours at the beach before I head home. I will arrive home to PA (where there are several inches of snow) with just a touch of sunburn and a recharged mental/emotional state.
I had arrived here feeling frazzled. I'd spent the previous 2 weeks sleeping 5-6 hours a night (I'm normally an 8-9 hour person, yikes!), not working out, eating crummy food, and falling behind in my "Bible in 90 Days" reading. It felt like I was running on a treadmill that was going just a hair too fast. Thankfully, I was able to hop off of that treadmill and onto the white sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico! I have caught up on sleep, sipped freshly squeezed orange juice every morning, soaked up extra Vitamin D, and have been doing double reading in my Bible and am almost caught up!
Speaking of which, here's something completely awesome. Thursday is Day 53 in the Bible in 90 Days challenge. Day 53 is reading Isaiah 52:13-Isaiah 66:18. Isaac's life verse was Isaiah 55:8-9. Since he died, mine has become Isaiah 61. I will read both of those passages on the one year anniversary of his death.
