At the beach…

Grey skies
Blue skies
The sun won’t decide

So many people
Along for the ride

Big kids
Small kids
So much fun had for all

I’m sure I’m the lone
One not having a ball

The beach is alright
If the tide’s not high
And I can take time to write

I don’t hate the beach entirely. There is much beauty to be seen. The waves are a majestic example of God’s power. The seashore is absolutely His handiwork. I can sit and be in awe of this wonder for hours.

What I don’t enjoy is the sand in my face and the stickyness I feel whenter sitting on a blanket in the sand or after emerging from the salty water. I do enjoy watching the kids have fun…That’s why I am here after all.

There is joy in seeing others have fun. There is joy in casual conversation with a friend.

The sun seems to have finally won the battle with the fog…at least temporarily. Young ones play together in the sand building – or trying to build – a sand castle before the tide rolls in and devours it.

Oh! The tide just won! Start over. 🙂

Lifeguards stand at alert
Parents chat
The sound of children laughing

Waves crashing down
Dads finding shells
Rebuilding castles in the sand

Sweet music of God’s creation
