~The Ocean Series~Through the Waters

 I looked upon the waters.

I do not deny that being on the beach listening to the ocean waves hit the shore has always brought me peace. I could literally sit there for days. And days.

But I have discovered something. Over the last couple of years we have visited many of the beautiful locations in our area.  As I glance through the pictures I have taken, I have discovered….being near a body of water evidently brings peace to my soul.

I know that scripture refers to “living water” many times over and that the Bible is full of images that have water symbolizing new life, fulfillment of the promises of God and cleansing.

Even the psalmist said in Psalm 23….”The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters”……

I know that this may all seem very simple and elementary…but right now that is maybe what we need. Simple and Elementary

The Father’s peace. We all want it…and how precious of Him to allow us our own personal ways of access.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I do not know what you are battling on a personal level. You might be disappointed in someone, dealing with a sick loved one, or even sickness yourself; whatever you are dealing with…please know that God’s peace is for you. He will remind you in the most personal ways….

It might even be through the waters…..

~The Ocean Series~ Sunrise, Sunset

 

 Sunrise?  Sunset?

Personally, I never have “favorites”  😉 , so I enjoy them both equally. The colors are amazing. The freshness that seems to accompany both is sometimes palatable. And if there are birds flying….let’s just say that makes a delightful picture to gaze at when you are still waiting for spring to arrive. Continue reading

~The Ocean Series~ Buoys with a Purpose

I just love sitting on the beach facing the ocean. I can literally do it for hours. It is so many things to people. Sometimes I like looking out at that huge expanse and seeing all the things in it, and imagining what is underneath the surface.

The “buoys” bobbing in the water fascinate me. Sometimes there are birds sitting on top of them. They usually look worn because they have been there for a while.

This is a true definition of the noun, “Buoy”: a distinctively shaped and marked float, sometimes carrying a signal or signals, anchored to mark a channel, anchorage, navigational hazard, etc., or to provide a mooring place away from the shore. Continue reading
