Joy In The Present

 


Do not say, "Why were the old days better than these?"  For it is not wise to ask such questions.
Ecclesiastes 7:10 NIV 
"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."  
Psalms 118:24 NRSV

Mount Beach at Tauranga, New Zealand





Tauranga is a popular place in New Zealand for families on holiday. It is New Zealand's premier surfing city. Mount Beach was crowded with students, families, and tourist on their summer vacation.  The beach and sky were gorgeous shades of blue.  What I liked about staying in Tauranga was the motel had no air condition and windows were opened to allow in fresh air.  The temperature was in the low 70's and it was wonderful to have fresh air circulating in the rooms. I have not been able to do that in the U.S. since I was a teen living at  home with my parents.  Due to security risks and crime, we have to keep our doors and windows locked.
