There's Something About the Ocean

"Something about the ocean makes me rise up and praise. Something about the heavens makes me stand in awe againS. omething about the sunrise reminds me of Your faithfulness. Something about the ocean and I'm lost in love again." - Ocean, Ten Shekel Shirt

We went to the beach yesterday.

The last time I'd been to a beach was August of last year, and I had missed it.

When I go to the beach, I always - ALWAYS - get at least my feet wet. I'm not the type to let the waves barely brush my toes. No - instead, I love it when I'm standing on the shore and the wave crashes down a few feet away and whooshes past me, coming up to my ankles.

"If you were the ocean, I'd be the sand. If you were the song, I'd be the band. If you were the stars, then I'd be the moon - a light in the dark, my darling, for you." - The Boat Song, JJ Heller

I love the beach. There's just something about it that's hard to describe. Like a sunset or a sunrise. It's so amazingly beautiful and incredible that you don't wanna look away. Just the sight of it can be therapeutic, in a way. Seeing a sunset, or going to the beach, you can just really...sense God's presence. And you can't help but think, Wow, God. You are beautiful.

God is incredible. It's amazingly beautiful and incredible to think that God came up with sunsets and sunrises and beaches. I'm sure that He knew when He was creating them that they would be great blessings to people. Because, I don't know about you, but when I see God's beautiful creation, I am SO in awe. God, You're so beautiful.

"I see Your Face in every sunrise. The colors of the morning are insinde Your eyes. The world awakens in the light of the day. I look up to the sky and say...'You're beautiful.'" - You're Beautiful, Phil Wickham

Hey Talia, ya probably don't know me but I've been following your blog and I've been encouraged in my walk with the Lord by it. Thanks so much! I'm an MK in China and I heard of your blog from Haley S. from Girl Talk.
I lost my daddy too, so I would love to pray for the folks at your church. I would love to have their name/s so I could pray for them more specifically. Thanks!
