My vocabulary is not adequate to relate what an experience we just had at the beach.
The sights: As far as the eye could see-white sands only sprinkled with tourists not crowds.
The Sounds: of all the little and not so little feathered creatures who belong there-each doing what they are programmed to do-making the sounds unique to each species but not invading our space with the cheep,cheep, churp, churp etc. Their noise was more like background music-not invasive, simply making the environment even more beautiful.
The white sands-like a massage to the feet. I declared our walks on the beach in the mornings to be Adult Fun! We both absolutely delighted in squishing our toes in the incredible white sands.
Let's not forget the nearly constant breezes..at times easy breezy and sometimes a stronger presence.
A beach has to have children playing, digging and squealing-some delighted by the rush of the water and others tentative and not yet comfortable with this beach thing. Its so neet to be able to be a bit like those children, as we watch for unbroken shells to gather and save?
All this reminds us of the three grands who have just spent their third winter season in the land of forever cold and snow. We both agree we want to make sure they get to share this kind of beach experience when they make their way south again.
Justa thought: God's incredible creation reminds us of Him and yes of loved ones! The time and miles never diminish or change that love.
God made us in His image, right? So it would seem He made us a very complex people..we sit and soak up his creation on the amazing white sands and revel in the joy of the moment, the relationships and in the same instant feel such sadness looking back at all the times we have not shared with those dear, dear loved ones.
mmm He is still God, He is Sovereign, and we continue to submit to that/and ask Him to bless that submission.
