God knows me all too well. He located me in a place where my soul could thrive; right here in the state of Florida. Would I have longed for the shore if I had been placed elsewhere? I'm not really sure. There is just something that draws me to the water. Maybe it's the mystery of the open water and knowing that there are living creatures among us that we can't see just below the surface of the water. I think I love it because it's similar to the kingdom of heaven in that we don't know everything about it, just bits and pieces. Most of what we know about the ocean has been told to us by others, just like our knowledge of heaven. Every now and then we get to see a glimpse of the mysteries of the sea just like on occasion we meet an angel, or so we think. We are not alone on this earth with only those beings we can see; there is a vast unknown world working all around us. Do you sense it?
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Hebrews 13:2
