I know I haven't added anything since May 2010 but I now feel more on track than ever. I have been here in Myrtle Beach SC (one of my most favorite places in the whole world and about 1,000,000 times better than Pittsburgh PA) and really found an inspiration. When I get home next week I have to get ready to post a podcast (look for BinnacleBox on iTunes or Podbean.com) and keep things current. Do you ever think you can't depend on anyone when you are despondent, depressed, in trouble or just plain feeling out of sorts? Well, I don't know everything, but I do know there is one who will always be in your corner and ready to help you through everything. It doesn't sound like much when it's 90+ degrees outside and all I see is sand and ocean and people here for the reason of having fun and relaxing, but we can't really escape reality. If I could leave everything behind and not care of worry about anything for a week, oh, how wonderful that would be! I do my best but I am still on Planet Earth and still bound to the Adamic curse. The only thing I can do is rely on the only one who can bear and share my burdens. Sun and sand is just like taking an aspirin for a headache. It may disappear for a little while but it will soon be back. Read Psalm 116 and listen to the podcast in a week or so and get a bit of understanding of the only solution for our problems. As nice as Myrtle Beach and the warm Atlantic Ocean water may be, it only is a temporary relief to everday life, so I have to keep in mind it is just a much needed vacation that will too soon come to an end.
