“The Ocean Series” ~The Mooring Rope

Since apparently the groundhog saw his sweet little shadow, I decided to focus one of my favorite areas of all time…the ocean and all that goes with it. I hope this series encourages you!

 

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 I feel like that old mooring rope. I am holding on, being thrown a little bit in different directions. I sometimes feel very frayed when a prayer that I 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.

Remember WAY back in the day when the “bag boy” at the grocery took your groceries to the car automatically without even asking? Don’t even get me started about “self check out”, but I digress….. Continue reading

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!!!!
