First Post

Hello there everyone in virtual-land! We haven't had a blog since high school, and we thought it was about time. The little-over-a-year-old Peterson family is due for some big changes and big events in the next few years, and we wanted to keep everyone informed. And I (Meredith) wanted an outlet for this fabulous addiction to writing that college instilled in me in the past few years.

So, here we are! We have one more day left in our Outer Banks paradise before heading home to face the real world once again. It's been blissful here, waking up to the rhythmic sound of waves, and staying there, just listening, for as long as we want. But, as usual with enjoyable things, relaxation has a dark side. It's so easy to throw off all Christian responsibility along with our work schedules and normal sleeping patterns. We think we can stop fighting our sinful natures or neglect to meet with God. And we suffer for it. But we also learn from it... as we have this week. Rest is good and necessary. But it's not complete rest unless it's accompanied by spiritual refreshment, which is only found in God, not on a beach or next to a pool.

Although beaches and pools are nice...
