As we drive west and get nearer the sea,
I never fail to remember Daddy telling us kids,
the seven of us packed like sardines into the back of the station wagon,
"First one to see the ocean gets a nickel!".
Now, decades later, my heart still quickens at the first glimpse of the sea.
By the sea, I never fail to find refuge,
to be soothed and somehow knit back together.
It seems that walking there on the sandy shore,
the Creator's words, "Let there be!" are still reverberating
as I look at His massive, majestic masterpiece.
By the sea, I am reminded that God is well able to handle everything in my one small, messy life.
I am comforted.
I am relieved.
I am at peace.
By the sea...
