Thoughts from the beach

It was nice being back on the beach last weekend for the wedding of Hope Stewart and Michael May. We couldn't have asked for a better day to be on Amelia Island.

As I watched the waves I was reminded of Jesus' words to the disciples when the storm rocked their boat: "don't be afraid."

With my toes in the sand and my eyes on the sky I remembered God's promises to Abraham that his blessings would be greater than the grains of sand or the stars in the sky.

Looking across the horizon I quietly recalled the old hymn "there's a wideness in God's mercy like the wideness of the sea..."

Meanwhile, it's Monday morning in Kennesaw, a dreary, 45-degree, overcast Monday morning... and I am thanking God for a day at the beach!
