I was blessed to enjoy the company of my family during spring break, to be able to spend quality time with them. Since my children live in another state, I see them only a few times each year, so it's a true blessing when I do. Highlights of our time together included a crawfish boil, grilling hamburgers, an Easter egg hunt for my grandchildren, and a golf-cart Easter parade led by the Pony Express train. Since this parade was at the campground, it was great for the young children. They stood in front of each campsite, and the golf carts stopped and threw candy, beads, and even stuffed animals. Bethany caught two teddy bears, a pile of beads, and a purse and bag full of candy, more than she'd gotten at a hustling,bustling parade where crowds fight and tromp one another. She had a great time and was full of energy.
The grands went swimming in the muddy river and the pool at the campground Saturday. We walked to the beach, and we walked our two dogs. It was a relaxing time much needed and deeply enjoyed. I thank God for our time together and pray we have many more such blessed days. Time flies, so take time from your busy schedule for those important in your life. Treasured days won't last, but the memories are everlasting.
Thursday, my husband and I went to tour Oakley Plantation and The Myrtles. We toured Rosedown with the family last summer. The children had to work, so we took a drive and enjoyed the old plantation homes. We didn't see any ghosts, but we took pictures we haven't had time to download.
We spent Easter Sunday on the road traveling back home. God saw us safely through the road trip and blessed the entire visit.

There is no one in life as capable of encouraging and motivating one’s soul as the blessed feel of the Holy Spirit, like a hand on my shoulder reassuring me. I have never felt closer to God than when I feel the touch of the Holy Spirit in times of need. That slight touch lets me know that I do not walk through this world alone. I have a heavenly Father who meets my every need. That heavenly touch makes all the difference in my life. I thank Him for being my best friend. How do I find comfort when I face problems? I speak with God in prayer. How does my garden grow? With God. When you need help, ask God through prayer.
