Being by the Ocean and Loving It

Looking east to Koko Head and Koko Crater from Kahala

Good Morning, God!

There is almost nothing as wonderful as sitting by the water. A small stream or creek will do. Water has an incredible attraction. But sitting by the water here in Hawaii has a special SUPER SATURATED FEEL to it.

Blue! How You must LOVE Blue! In fact, the only speaker I ever heard who seemed to GET how ENTHUSIASTICALLY YOU LOVE is Tony Campolo. He was talking about You making daisies and how You loved them so much You just kept making them.

Aaah, God, if you love daisies how about orchids? Wow!

Of course, You love US too . . . I was going to say that You love us EVEN MORE but I think trying to quantify You is impossible. Anyway, I was just going to observe that even more fun than the venue are the friends! Yesterday my friend was telling me all about “Second Life” (3D virtual reality web sites) — telling me how REAL it feels — how she feels as if she has WALKED on the Great Wall of China. She is amazing and she’s learning to create sites in Second Life.

I teased her about the Joy of “Playing God.” But she observed that as we are “Made in God’s Image” it makes sense that we LOVE to create. Good point, God! Creating IS a JOY! Then my friend observed that SHARING what we create is EVEN MORE of a JOY! And, here I am with my mini creations — sharing as best I can — so I sure do agree.

Is that why You made us, God? So You could SHARE with us? It sure feels like it and it feels really good, God.
