The weather was beautiful and we most definitely enjoyed the sunshine.
Below are three pictures Dave took while we were there:
The sun is usually an important factor when on vacation. It affects what we do, where we go, and how fulfilling we find the experience.
No matter how spectacular the scenery (and it was) or how brightly the sun shone (and it did), it's almost insignificant compared to the impact the Son has on our lives.
And, amazingly, while Jesus makes it clear from various passages in the gospel of John that He is the Light of the World, He also refers to His followers in this way. (See Matthew 5:14-16.)
So whether we're on vacation or in the midst of our day-to-day routine ... whether the sun is shining brightly or the clouds are thick and grey ... may we all shine brightly in the days ahead.
