"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Our Trip to Cannon Beach- Seble's FIRST TRIP TO THE OCEAN!
Amber won an overnight stay in Cannon Beach at the Hallmark Resort-it was wonderful to get away for a night -with our little stowaway Seble of course!
This is the view from our room!
We also had a nice gas fireplace in our room!
Seble is ready for her spa treatment! LOL
This was what I could lay in bed and look at-wish it was for a week and not just one day-it was beautiful. We slept with the window open to hear the ocean and even though it was cold-I love the sound!

Our Hotel in the background-
Seble has never seen the ocean OR sand before-she actually loved it!
She loved the cold water-we thought she might cry, but no, she wanted more-she wanted down to get into it!
Strolling on the beach-
"HMMM what is on my hand?"
"I better taste it to see if it's any good!"
"Yuck not very good!"
Trying to crawl in the sand was cute to watch-she was very cautious-it moves when her hands go down so she put them down very softly for a few times and very slowly-not sure if the ground was gonna stay in place it seemed.
"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
