Dear Lord, how we’ve waited for this vacation and now it’s finally here.  Thank You, Lord, for the opportunity to take a break from our daily routines and to replenish our minds, bodies and souls so they we may better serve you.  Sometimes our expectations for vacations are unrealistic, and we find ourselves disappointed when things don’t go our way.  Help us not to worry about having the ‘perfect’ vacation but to relax and enjoy every moment, whatever it may bring.  We are grateful for the joys that await us-whether they are the beauty of your creation, recreation with family or friends, or peace and solitude.  Watch over us and protect us as we travel, and bring us safely home again-refreshed and renewed.  Amen.
