What Happens in Cambria, Stays in Cambria
This last weekend I went to Cambria with some gals.
It was my first time to Cambria, and definitely not my last! Oh, it is so beautiful!
Beautiful beaches, quaint shops, trolley, and a yummy grill (much like the terribly missed Sierra City Grill for you Oakhurstians).
I have never beach combed on this type of beach. I brought home pocket's full of rocks, each one so unique. As I combed I found I was more surprised by each one, and at the hand of God at work making them. By tumbling through the sand, they become polished, the edges become smooth. They are beautiful. I consider how my Maker takes time to shape, and make these little treasures. Surely He puts more into me.
I think what made this weekend so over the top, was the women I was with. They are each so unique (like the rocks). Being shaped and molded by God's hand. It was wonderful to hear of their experiences, challenges, growth (of their tumbling) and to see how faithful God has been to each one.
I came to realize I am beautiful. Seeing pieces of myself in each women. Seeing the beauty in them, made me welcome it, accept it for me.
