I’ve just returned from my last walk into the sun.
Our family departs the seashore in only a couple hours. I’ve spent the last hour wandering in the surf–watching the crabs, and dolphins, singing my prayers out over the ocean—offering these dead men’s bones up to God and trusting Him to reassemble them.
I told God I would miss meeting Him here every morning…which seems an odd thing to say given that I carry Him inside of me. Still, I need these times to set aside the world and focus on Him. After every holiday, I promise the same: I will remain here; in this place…close to you, Lord.
And it works.
For a time.
I’m working on that. I’m always working on that.
But right now, I feel Him near so sweetly that I can almost feel His breath.
Think I’ll enjoy His company awhile.
I’ll see you all back in West Virginia.
Leaving you with some of my favorite memories…
Yes! That’s me, up in the sky with the clouds! It was amazingly beautiful seeing the ocean from a birds-eye view.
