One of my favorite places is Jekyll Island, Georgia. It is not real commercial. It is pretty laid back and has an amazing beach. We so enjoyed spending a couple days there at the end of our vacation. As I was walking the beach, I remembered something I had written in 1992.
A WALK ON THE BEACH
I walked on the beach and there did see
How close to life the ocean can be.
The tide, like our days, comes and goes
Our lives, like the tide, have highs and lows.
The tide of life can be strong, its pull never ceases
Leaving our bodies broken, our souls in pieces.
Or the tide may be gentle, leaving us whole and strong
Life fitting together, each piece where it belongs.
Our life is uncertain, no day is the same
We go through life seeking fortune and fame.
But the sand changes, as the wind does blow
And the road isn’t straight, when the tide is low.
As I walked along, many people would go by
Some would keep on going, others would say hi.
Daily we see people, who care and who reach out
But some never quite understand, what life is all about.
So when you walk your beaches, as through this life you go
When the sand is shifting, as your tide goes to and fro.
Remember other people are walking beaches too
Ready to reach out and share the joy of life with you.
SCRIPTURE: PSALM 139:9
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
Is your tide at a high or low right now? No matter which, remember God is holding you fast.
