Turnberry Isle Resort

In October I took a business trip to Turnberry Isle Resort in Florida.  It is located between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.  It is a very nice place to spend a couple days.  Earlier in the year I stayed at the Fountain Bleu in Miami.  I like Turnberry much better.  It is a more relaxed environment.  The photo above was the view from my balcony on the fourth floor.  It is a beautiful place to spend a few days, but it's not home.  Regardless of how beautiful a place I am required to stay when traveling on business, I always look forward to getting on that plane and coming home to Northwest Arkansas.  For the Christian, this world is much the same way.  It may be the only place we know, and it may may be as well manicured as the Turnberry, but it is not home.  Our home is in a place prepared for us by our Savior.  As I grow older, I understand a little better why some senior adult Christians are ready to go home.  I'm not as thin as I once was, and never will be again.  I'm not as athletic as I once was, and never will be again.  Age has a way of taking a little of the joy out of life, but there is a place where neither age nor physical condition will not be an issue.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not ready to go just yet, but I do understand the message in this gospel favorite. There will come a day when I will say,  "Precious Lord, Lead Me Home".  Have a blessed week-end.


  1. Great photograph. I love Florida very much. Love the weather the most. You had a fabulous view indeed.

  2. That is a lovely place, and the threatening cloud only makes it look more impressive. Nice photo.

  3. Terrific capture, love the vivid colors of grass, trees and skies! The clouds do look threatening, but Al is right, they only make it look more impressive. And it is indeed always great to get home again! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  8. I love how the colors of the buildings match the colors of the clouds and how the sand patches in the golf course almost look like clouds on the ground....
