The best time to visit Florida? Surely it’s July, right? Or August? Okay, not so much, but when my sister spent weeks in a Florida hospital (near where she lives) this past summer, my other sister (who lives near me), her hubby, and I flew kitty-corner across the continent to visit for three days to see her and her family.
It was good to be there, and I was also super thankful my nephew was able to take a few hours off work to take me to the ocean. We had a really good visit as we wandered along New Smyrna Beach, and I got to clear my head a little with the long view, which was so helpful.
**I prepped this post before Hurricane Ian. September wins for being the worst time to visit Florida! I hope all our Florida peeps and others who’ve been in Ian’s path are safe and counting blessings. Our prayers have been with you.

The evening before our crack-of-dawn flight back home, we left the hospital just at sunset. I shot this photo out the rental SUV’s back window across Lake Monroe to remind me that sunrise and sunset come every day, whether we get to see a glorious display or not. And God is always with us, too, whether we see or feel the evidence at the moment or not.
