~The Ocean Series~ Our Anchor

 

Have you ever watched the sailboats and ships while sitting on the shoreline? Some of them seem to glide effortlessly across the water. Others seem to go at a much slower pace. Some even appear to have dropped their anchor and just sit still.

An anchor is a device, normally made of metal, used to connect a vessel to the bed of a body of water to prevent the craft from drifting due to wind or current.

Do you ever feel like you are being tossed back and forth in the waves of “life”? There were many times in my life that I wondered if I could hang on myself. And sometimes I was drifting and did not know it until I saw the distance to the shore!

We have coasted out from the shoreline a time or two on boats. No wake, the water crystal clear and beautiful. We wanted to stay there…in the peaceful and calm water. But the wind or even other boats’ waves would move us up and down, side to side. How on earth could we stay put?

We dropped an anchor.  It hit the sand with a thud and we knew we would stay put. We relaxed, rested and the peace simply engulfed us. How wonderful we had that anchor on board!!

Our soul, once given up to Christ, is firm and secure! What do we know about anchors? They are stable, they are buried and they stay firm!  Good news, is that we can say the same for our souls…once we have been born again. The anchor holds!

Are those seas rough? Are you being tossed a little too much for your liking? Grab hold of that anchor!

Grandma and Gifts

I remember my maternal grandmother with so much love. She was a feisty little lady who lived until she was 94 years old.

I would spend the night with Grandma Fannie and watch “As the World Turns” during the day, and “Lawerence Welk” at night. We would eat pancakes in the morning, and popcorn at night I think she started my love of reading and writing because she always had several issues of Reader’s Digest to share with me and would ask me questions after I would read them. And we always painting our nails. Continue reading

Wake Up

It is the day after Christmas. The “sugar hangover” may be a part of this morning, so bring on the coffee.

The tree may still be up, the unwrapped presents are put up or ready for exchange.

Some will have to go back to work, others will be off for a few more days. Some will get on the road to travel, some even to vacation.

But no matter what this day brings….

Even though the actual “holiday” is over…..

God still sent His son as a baby to be born in a manger…so that He could understand what it was like to be human.

This new baby….a life to be lived.

For us…

So that we might have life.

Pretty amazing actually.

I want to remember that….. every. single. morning.
