We went in the dark – at 6:15 AM. and was surprised at all the cars and activity.
This was but one of several services up and down the beach.
ELCA – which we are a member of – along with the Episcopal church –
Came together to have this service.
I would guess by the start – some 4 to 5 hundred souls gathered on the beach-
many standing – others brought their own chairs
At last – in more than a year – we attended a live service.
All our married lives – we have attended church – me – I converted from Catholic to Lutheran
which was how Sherry was raised.
They were mostly silent – a few murmurs here and there – ushers directing people – passing out communion cups and wafers – a few announcements – still cold – but at least there was no wind. The sound of the surf – the seagulls – the stillness of the early morning hour – the sand cold – bundled up – ear muffs and scarf – waiting – waiting – waiting.
This time when they came – Daddy came also – not having had to work!
They so missed him last time when they came for a long weekend!
She is always by him – Cassidy is the free spirit – independent – spitfire with a heart of gold!
All three adore their father – all three can and are a hand full – Taylor the most laid back – Cassidy and Bode two peas in a pod – always on the move – Bode – all boy – and now learning to golf with his Daddy!
Riding horses is Taylor’s dream – she rides once a week – has for the last four years.
Sherry said this was the highlight for her being down here in S.C.
Riding horses with her daughter and granddaughters!
