Dreams! We all have them and wonder if they will ever come true. This year I turned 50 and I am celebrating 25 wonderful years of marriage to my Mr. Darcy. Can you tell what is my favorite book? Oh I digress!!! My dream is to go to a quiet beach and sit and take it in. Watch my footprints disappear as the water washes ashore. I have always been amazed at how God brings the ocean to the shore and how big it is….like Him. I wonder if I stand on the beach will I be small. Next to the ocean I imagine that would be true. But in God’s eyes I am not small. I like to think the ocean reminds us that there is nothing God can’t handle. He is a big God and while I am small and life can overtake me, He will swoop me into His arms so I am not swallowed by the chaos of the world. When I think of the ocean, I think of how God is right there and I can hear His whispers. There is just Him and me. Nothing to get in the way. Nothing to drown out His voice. That is what I want. A sacred place to just be even for a few minutes. I hope this summer my dream of meeting God at the beach comes true. Life is an adventure and I am sure no matter where I meet God I will not be small, but valued and cherished and most of all…loved.
Blessings on your day,
