"My husband and I and our family have been blessed to spend time together on Bald Head Island, NC. During this time, God allows us to enjoy His creation--from the ocean to the sky, from the sand to the woods, the foxes, the turtles, and the dolphins. For seven days we reflect on His love and grace and peace. For a moment time stands still and we exist in harmony. I wish all families a time like this." Diane Yates
