~The Ocean Series~ Creation Cries Out

When I look at pictures of past visits to the ocean I am speechless.  The blue skies, white ocean caps, red flowers, beautiful seagulls, clouds, the golden moon…need I say more?

And I still gaze in awe.

My Father created it all. It will never cease to amaze me. I am absolutely breathless when I see a line of clouds form over the gulf and deliver rain and gusts of wind. My eyes literally tear up when I sit on the edge of the beach and watch dolphins play in the currents. My heart swells at the mere thought of the expansive nature of the ocean in front of me. I reach out my hand to touch the moon, as if I can.


We have so much to see on our earth. Whether it is the ocean, mountains, or even the annoying snow that sometimes seems to bury us…we have a beautiful world. We have misused it and polluted it…..and yet creation continues to cry out!

Websters defines “Handiwork” as “work done by the hands; work done personally.”


We collected shells, and no two were the same. Continue reading God’s Handiwork
