He is Doing a New Thing!

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:19 NIV

Puerto Rico city view 2018

I have just returned from a visit to Puerto Rico. The island has still not fully recovered from the effects of the hurricanes last year (building on the left) but things are happening (building on the right).

That is why today’s verse applies in so many ways. The people of Puerto Rico know that God is doing a new thing. He is helping them to rebuild their home and their country. He is showing them it can be done because He is the creator of new things as evidenced in these beautiful Plazas Las Americas mall decorations.  Do you agree? How has God done a new thing in your life?

 

 

Sea + Sand + Sun = Rare Fun For Me :)

Grand Cayman, paddle boards, beach, fun

Here in the Caribbean we enjoy Summer all year long but it’s during the months of July and August that the sea and sand bathed under fluffy clouds and a hot sun call to us the most … maybe because that’s when we have the most fun of all.

Feet under waves

But interestingly enough, it is really quite rare for me to even make it to the beach, far less letting the soothing waters caress my toes. You can live right by the seaside and never make it into the waves and that’s why I love this last photo here a lot 🙂

“Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.” ~ Regina Brett
