Catching Up from Labor Day Weekend Stay-cation — Thoughts from September 5
Labor Day weekend “stay-cation” — As I mentioned in my previous post, hubby Dave and I have been on a “stay-cation” over the past few days, just doing some day trips to wrap up our summer. Yesterday, September 5, we went to one of our favorite seafood restaurants and then spent some time at the ocean, walking along the shore and in the water. Something about the ocean always reminds me of God’s power and majesty… and yet, in the midst of the display of strength, there are reminders of His loving care in the small creatures and birds who thrive in and on this salty ocean water.
Onto yesterday’s belated thought about the best gift ever given…
“Thank You, Father, that You so loved the world
that You gave Your one and only Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ….
Thank You for the way He rebuked the arrogant
and looked with favor on the humble-minded,
opening wide the door of His kingdom
to those who were destitute and helpless in spirit.
I delight in Your tender mercies, O my God,
by which the Sunrise on high has come to us!”
–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise”
I am so thankful God cares about the big and little things in our lives. He has blessed us with His love, with salvation, and with natural wonders like the ocean and all its treasures.
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Do you ever ponder the enormity of God or any higher power?
Have you ever been to the ocean? If so, what’s your favorite feature of visiting the ocean?
