Letting Go.....

Hey Y'all,

This past week I was in Myrtle Beach, SC with some of my family. My mother, sister, nieces and my daughter, Erica and Blake came down. It was a beautiful week weather wise and I was so grateful. All of us girls in this family love to wake up, eat a bite, grease up (with sunscreen) and hit the beach. We literally stay on the beach all day long. We come in for a bite of lunch and head right back out until evening. Then we clean up and go out to eat. Needless to say I have some serious weight to watch right now and I need to watch it fall off!!! It is my favorite place to go bar none. I love the ocean. The waves crashing, the wind, smells, sights and sounds of the coast are so soothing to my weary soul. This week I prayed alot, read the Bible alot, thought a whole lot. Watch out Tracy...I have been thinking again! I have decided to let many things go. Just head right on out of my life. I have a pair of wonderful daughters, a terrific son in law and a beautiful grand daughter coming very soon. But better than that, God is enough. He truly is an awesome God. He heals even the deepest wounds. Sure there are scars and I am sure at times these wounds may fester up a bit, but I know a wonderful healer that can renew a healing super-quick. I have a wonderful and very blessed life. God has provided me with a loving and caring family and a church family that is so supportive and friends that I could not ask to be better. God is just so good y'all! This week I did not have access to my email but when I got home I caught up on this devotional that I get daily. To tell you how precious God is, this whole past week was about rest. Resting as a stress reliever, a depression reliever and mostly in our Kinsman Redeemer....Jesus. Proverbs 31:30 tells me "Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised." I so desire that fear to be inlaid deep in my soul and my character. Healthy, awe-filled fear of a Holy God that redeems this weary, teary woman from the sickest, blackest of pits. Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.

Here are few pictures that I took. I actually took 10 million but I won't make you look at them all!

This was a fantastic kite a man was flying. He had three on one string!

This was another of the three.

This is a shot from way in the sky. Beautiful!

I love the ocean. So majestic.

This is Erica about to lose her patience with me and my camera.

I don't know what tomorrow holds for me but I do know who holds my tomorrow in His hands and that is enough for me. Happy 4th of July everybody!! I am going outside now and watch all the fireworks that my neighbors shoot in the sky!

Bless Y'all,
