I’m at an east coast location this morning waiting to hurry out the door to watch the sunrise. This Atlantic Ocean beach is different than the Gulf of Mexico; the waves are harsher, and they slam the coastline hard, and for some reason, the sand has a tinge of color that changes the seashells to orange. The dunes are high to protect the homes that are built quite close to the madness of these furious waters, but even though it’s different than I’m used to, it’s still quite beautiful, and I’m thankful to be here experiencing more of the beauty God has given us to enjoy. Did I forget to tell you that my family is close? Having them near makes this little trip even more special.
My grandson is sleeping on the pull-out bed right next to me, and my little dog is curled up next to him. He has a connection to the LORD like no one else I know. He stands firm in his belief, and God answers his prayers. The Holy Spirit is strong in this room; that is probably why I feel so peaceful and comforted. Take a moment today to enjoy a bit of God’s creation and give thanks to him for giving us quiet moments amid a chaotic world.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27
