Perdido Key

Last week, Neil and I were able to take a trip to Perdido Key, Florida.  His wonderful Grandparents had rented a condo at The Eden for the entire month of October, and so generously offered for us to come down and spend some time on the beach!  It was such a wonderful, relaxing and rejuvenating trip for us.  Perdido means Lost in Spanish, and it really did feel like a hidden resort.  Since this is Florida's off season, we were about the only people at the place!  The condo we stayed in was GORGEOUS!  It had flat screen tv's, two fireplaces, a full kitchen, washer and dryer, the works!

   All around the grounds were water falls, tropical flowers, palm trees and clear blue water.  Our balcony overlooked the lush resort and was right on the beach.  We loved sitting on the deck each night, listening to the waves crashing in.

"Have you ever looked at the ocean,
Seen the white foam at your feet,
Felt the endless thundering motion,
Then I say you've seen Jesus my Lord"

Ooh, thanks for putting all this up for us to enjoy! You ended with a quote; who said that?

It is actually a quote from a song. It is called, Jesus My Lord by John Fischer. Its one of my favorites, and this setting had me singing it all weekend!
