~The Ocean Series ~The Mooring Rope

Since the weather has cooled off a bit and so many are soothed and encouraged by the ocean, I decided to share this series again.  The timing seems perfect.  Hope you are all well and safe.  We will get through this!

Have you ever walked past a dock where all the boats are moored? You can “hear” the mooring ropes as the waves hit against the boats. If the wind is strong or there has been a storm it is even louder. The pulling, stretching and pressure put on these ropes over time is strong.

Upon investigation, some of those ropes look very old and worn, yet they still maintain their strength. Even upon fraying, the rope that remains seems to be stronger than before. I suppose over time, and without the help of the boat’s owner, the rope will eventually break and need replaced or repaired.

Sometimes we feel like that old mooring rope. We are holding on, being thrown a little bit in different directions. We sometimes feel very frayed when a prayer that we have uttered for years doesn’t seem to be answered.

Can you relate?

But, as always, the boat’s owner repairs, replaces or strengthens the rope. Just like our Father. He offers repair, He offers strength and even replaces our faith with a renewal of faith.   And in the midst of the pulling, stretching and pressure…we get a little stronger.

So feeling like an old mooring rope might not be such bad thing.

“Seaside Change” Finally!

This took a while. This is a unique book, almost “4 books in 1.” It is a novella with a 30-Day Devotional, Discussion Guide, and scripture references reaffirming our identity in Christ.

Formatting was the challenge, because the book contains lines for notes and reflection. But it is finished!

I have not blogged in a while, determined to complete this before my granddaughter’s first birthday. It was August 5, so I almost made it.

I hope to get back to blogging more on a regular basis, but I am working on Book 2 of the “Unexpected Gift Series”, TAKE HEART. I have goals….LOL

May you be encouraged today dear ones!

~The Ocean Series~ Hair, The Beach, Salt Water and Freedom

 

There is some irony here.  Why is it that when I am at the beach my hair gets kinkier, curlier and of course the frizz is at an all time high?

We sometimes spend a day at the beach and then go in to get ready to go out and eat.  I use to spend time doing my hair before we went out for that “picture perfect” meal outside near the sand so we could see the moon and hear the surf.SALTYHAIR.png

Time not well spent.  The minute I would walk out the door, my hair demanded its own way.  More curl, more frizz and more kink!  

And yet….. Continue reading
