A visit to the seashore, especially the Gulf of Mexico in the panhandle of Florida, is one of my favorite places. During times of fatigue and stress, seeing those waves rolling in and hearing them splash on the shore can bring an ahhhhh to my heart. I penned this little poem during my last visit. Tucked away, safely waiting for a day when I need to be reminded of God’s grace and love for His children. We can only imagine how beautiful heaven will be. Oh Lord, how great thou art.
Blue, clear life-giving,
our Creator chooses who lives within its liquid walls.
Depths that reveal a world for a select few,
mysterious to mere humans.
But, oh the smell, it’s taste settles peacefully on my lips.
Your voice sings a lullaby with a cadence that soothes the overwhelmed.
Your bully ways remind sailors and land-lovers alike of your mighty power.
Obedient to only your Master; peace be still. You will go here and no farther.
You are bordered with softness.
