The Young Man and the Sea

MaryAnn Gaver

The guys are fishing this morning, but the fish aren't biting -- at least not yet!   I'm standing at the very tip of Cape Fear where waves are furiously crashing in criss-cross fashion. The area is known for its strong currents, treacherous tides and shallow spots that have 30-ft. drop-offs when you take your next step.  Not a place for swimming. 

Walking south, the water is much calmer. It's relaxing to hear the surf as I  walk ankle-deep through the cold water.

The ocean truly is magnificent I think of Psalm 104:24-26 (KJV):

O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all:  the earth is full of thy riches.  So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.  There go the ships; there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. 

....Headed to the house (on the south side of the island) to leave the guys to fish w/ dad...

...will grab my book Charity and Its Fruits by Jonathan Edwards, read a few pages (I'm still getting used to his style), walk, think and pray....

Have a wonderful day!  Talk to you tomorrow.

Keep being a great mom!
