Walking up to Jesus

This past weekend, our family went to the coastal town of San Juan del Sur for an overnight. This "beach trip" was the reward for finishing the second week of school. We stayed with some new friends (thanks Keith and Kelly and kids) and enjoyed the beach life for about 24 hours! In the town of San Juan del Sur there is a large statue of Jesus on the top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean--it is kind of like a smaller version of Christ the Redeemer in Brazil. The statue can be seen from the beach and the surrounding hillside. We even had the opportunity to "walk up to Jesus". Noah decided that he wanted to "make a God" at his house too. His heart is in the right place! LOL! Honestly though, taking that "walk up to Jesus" and looking out over God's majestic creation was a good reminder that we can "walk up to Jesus" anytime.
