For a South Dakota girl that lives about as far away from sea water as I can get, it is amazing how good this massive body of water is for my soul. Once a year I get somewhere that I experience the sound of the waves crashing against the shore.
Last night at supper we were talking about the amazing creation God performed in making the oceans. My middle daughter said, "I know one reason why God created the oceans. It was so we could know that He loves us as deep as the ocean and as wide as the sea."
Maybe that is why I can come to this place and experience so much peace. I stand in the waves and I can sense God's power. As the waves roll towards me I feel God's love being poured on me.
I am far from home, far away from the stresses that come with keeping a home. I have been pretty much unplugged for the past week and a half. That has been very good for my soul, too.
It is amazing how much inspiration I have when I sit with a blank pad of paper and a pen.
As June approaches I have decided to change my blog a little bit. You have all been so patient as I have worked through my rough drafts. You will have to stop by to see where I am headed with this new chapter.
I will tell you this, June will be all about Focusing on the Father. We will be celebrating our Heavenly Father, our earthly fathers and our amazing husbands - our children's fathers. Do you have a Father story to share, I would love to feature you here this month.
