In spite of my seemingly close proximity to the ocean, i don't see it very often. I realized today, that i have not visited the ocean since before I married the super hero.
Tonight we had dinner by the beach. In a few minutes we'll walk on it in the dark.
The first ten minutes or so that we were here, I cried. I'd forgotten how much I love the beach.
The thing that gets to me the most if how unbelievably enormous the water is and how much more beyond my grasp greater, God has to be.
It evokes my heart to worship every time i see the sea. I just can't help it.
It has taken me so long to write this post, that i am finishing it a day later.
Before we left the beach last night, we decided that we would get ourselves up and to the beach in time to watch the sun rise this morning. And that we did.
We collected rocks and sea shells; we checked out washed up sea life; we got thoroughly wet in the surf coming further than we anticipated onto the sand; I cried some more at the awesomeness of it all. Oh, and a nice man walking by, watching us take pictures of the sunrise, offered to take a picture of us. It's one of my favorite pictures ever.
I want to share it with you, but I pathetically have not figured out how to put pictures on my blog with my sometimes not-so-smart-after-all phone, so you'll have to go see it at this link.
Let's hope this works.
