“The Ocean” Series~~ Our Home

 

Have you ever visited somewhere that feels like “home” to you?

My “home” seems to be the beach. The ache in my soul is a reminder that I am not at “home”.  Deep within my heart is a love for the ocean and everything about it. I love to stare upon the horizon and let my thoughts drift to a peace and comfort I only seem to access there. I enjoy listening to the waves and the constant, rhythmic lapping as they hit the shoreline.

My husband and I have talked about moving south many times. I have looked for jobs, houses and cost of living. I am just convinced that I belong on the beach and would feel so at “home” there.

My desire to live on the beach would eventually cave in like the castle built on the sand. I would soon have the desire to live somewhere else. My daughter in law once asked a local that lived on an island that we visited where he vacationed? His response? “The mountains…there I can breathe and relax.”

Is the fact that we are on vacation….away from the drama of life, that make us feel more relaxed and at “home”? The swirling circumstances of life are put on hold for a week.  The busy lives we lead slow down to a snail’s pace and we stop, listen and relax.  

As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, my spirit is truly longing for my heavenly home. I will never truly feel at “home” until I am there…..

But….Let me be clear on one thing….

…if someone offers us a cottage on the beach….we will gladly accept!!

The Millinery Shop

The Millinery Shop

Although I never got to see it, my grandmother owned a millinery shop. Oh how I would have loved to seen all those hats and accessories!

Each one different than the other, no one just the same. Each one designed and made with love and devotion. I bet there was one that would even fit my very large head!

I guess that is like each one of us. Designed with love and devotion. Neither of us is the same. We all have different DNA, fingerprints, personality traits, hair color, height, weight…..you get the idea.

And each one of us is loved with a “reckless raging fury that they call the love of God.” (Rich Mullins’ The Love of God)

You may not feel that right now. That love may have seemed to alluded you, truly has not. It is there for your acceptance. For you to embrace. For you to wear….He loves you so much my friend.

Wear that hat, trust me, it fits perfectly.

I Can See Clearly Now

 

 

It used to just be reading glasses…

Do you like to read?  I must say it is one of my favorite past times…even if I fall asleep when I do it before bed.    

Then these things started happening…..When I turned 40 my arms simply were not long enough. Then I had to transfer from just reading glasses to the tri focal version.  And now at 57, they are the first thing I grab in the morning. In fact…let’s see a show of hands…who has gotten into the shower with them on? Or better yet, pushed them up on your nose only discover that you have already removed them and they are not on!!!!
