When Cathy Baker mentioned her idea to me of vacation-focused devotionals, my reaction was overwhelmingly positive!

First, Cathy is refreshing as a sister in Christ and as a writer. Her perspective is genuine, creative, and grounded in God’s Word. I visit her blog whenever I need a fresh thought on my spiritual life. And her love for the Lord and for others, as well as her funny-bone, inspires me all the time in our friendship.

Second, whenever I have an opportunity to get away, I desperately want a break from routine, but I’m not interested in a “getaway” from God! I love the idea of having a special devotional just for those times when I’m looking for a change from daily life. I always want to include God even when I’m on retreat or vacation, and this unconventional little book is just the ticket. Cathy’s careful, but delightful approach to God’s Word and spiritual life is a perfect match for this.

She’s a gentle soul willing to speak truth and light in an often dark world.

You and I look a lot—but do we really see?

One inescapable sound of every beach vacation’s soundtrack is the peal of children’s laughter.

The aromas that wafted through that pink summerhouse mingled perfectly with the sea salt breezes, to create unforgettable memories.

He quieted the sea with His power. Job 26:12

“To go out with the setting sun on an empty beach is to truly embrace your solitude.”  Jeanne Moreau

Snow reminds me of my maternal grandmother, Elsie Knighton. It’s one of the many reasons why I love it. 💕

She made snow cream for the two of us and without fail, she called to celebrate even the lightest of snowfalls. Oh, how I miss those calls. ❤️
