Seaside Amore

The ocean is like this massive magnet that I can’t be far from long. I think that it is its very massiveness that makes it so alluring. I stand on the edge of this dock completely mystified and intrigued. With its profundity of creatures, from the sea-horse to the blue whale, to those creepy glow-in-the-dark fish with the most bizarre shapes (We’ve all seen those episodes on the discovery channel, right?). Similar to the way I feel when a huge boom of thunder echoes in the sky, or when running on a trail completely surrounded by woods, it reminds me that there is no way we are alone here. That Someone so incredibly mighty and intelligent and creative is behind all of it. The ocean is a place that gives me an awe for God, an awe that is so easily lost in the ho-hum of my daily existence. Here, the awe comes naturally and I revel in it like a little girl in pigtails looking up at her dad after he just plucked her ball off of a tree branch, with unbridled wonder at how big and strong he is.
