For today we received a lovely message from Glenn and JoAnn Murphy from Basking Ridge, New Jersey.

They wrote to us saying; “Aruba is to me… the Pearl of God’s Creation. Its white talcum powder beaches and its crystal clear waters reveal and unveil God’s artistry as they shout of God’s love of beauty. This unspoiled hidden gem invites us to imagine the perfection of a future heaven and to incline our ears to the echoes of a past unblemished garden (Eden).

We first discovered Aruba’s enchanting and jaw dropping beauty just after the turn of the century. We later returned for our 25th wedding anniversary and have been back every year since. Now as we celebrate our 44th anniversary we still find ourselves giggling with delight as we frolic in her waters and stroll her pristine beaches. It is here on this paradise-like island that we set aside the stress of modern life. It is here in this magical place that we renew and refresh our enduring love for each other. It is here in this indescribably delicious setting that we connect with the God who imagined it all and spoke it into existence.

Thank you God for Aruba, this gift of your boundless and unfathomable love for us all.”

Thank you for sending us this beautiful message sharing what Aruba means to you with us and our readers!
