A Morning at the Beach

Good Morning, God!

I love silhouettes! That way I don’t invade people’s privacy. And these folks — either going out or coming back from surfing — caught the JOY of the morning. Then too, there is the BLUE of the water and the sky . . . which I figure must be one of Your favorite colors. It is surely one of mine!

Actually ALL COLORS are favorites of mine. Seeing Moorish Idols fish with their yellow stripes with the black and white stripes brought me joy. Even the black and white Convict Tang were a joy!

My wonderful husband Kit suggested last night that we could go to the beach this morning. I really appreciated that because he is not a “Water Rat” the way I am. So he takes off his shoes and socks and walks around on the sand . . . working on his balance and grounding . . . while I snorkel away.

Our trip to the beach was such a good example of the blessing of being in the NOW. Yes, there are problems and worries . . . and even fears ahead. But, I am learning that RIGHT NOW is almost always wonderful. And I am also learning that my imagination is almost always worse than reality.

Then too, I have been through AWFUL TIMES and YOU were there with me. And I made it through to the other side. Not with out pain and loss and sorrow. But with HOPE.

I guess, God, that believing that You do love us and will not simply abandon us . . . is a VAST COMFORT! Perhaps that was why it was so easy this morning to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the beach. And the joy of being alive!
