When you are in the Caribbean, sun protection is crucial. The sun is warm and beautiful and relaxing, but can also pack quite a punch on your skin. So the weathered palm branch huts, the sheltering trees along the edges of the soft white beaches, all provide that welcomed protection after swimming in the perfectly clear blue waters for a while.
When I was younger I used to see God’s guidelines as restrictions, laws, things that were no fun and not very loving. But with time, I now see that God’s guidelines are full of love, protection, mercy, and grace. Because He loves me, He wants me to be safe, to be protected. How wonderful. Like sitting under a big palm tree on a hot sunny beautiful day. Slainte, Lisa
