Lovers of the Sea

     Just about everyone in our family are lovers of the sea.  One particularly beautiful blue sky day, it hit me just how much the Lord must love the color blue.  If you think about the blue skies and blue seas, blue covers the majority of the earth.  Not so surprising, blue is the favored color of both men and women. (

     I remember the first time I stood on the beach as a young girl. (Not so very long ago!) I was awestruck at the vastness.  The moment my eyes set upon the Pacific Ocean in San Diego I instantly became a lover of the sea.  When you gaze upon a body of water that stretches farther than the eye can see, you realize how small you are in this universe.  Someone once said when you begin to feel indispensable, stick your hand in a pail of water and pull it out.  As the water immediately fills the space of your hand, you will see just how significant your space in this world is.

Andrea our California Gal
      I would have to say the most adamant lover of the sea in our family is niece Andrea.  She is as competent and successful in her journalism career as she is in life.  Accomplished in any area she endeavors, but always makes room for her "board" meetings most every day.  The girl has her priorities.

    It is past time to revisit my first sea love. I have grown very homesick for her. We will as always, receive as much joy cheering her on as Dre' hangs ten.  As for aunt, I would probably break all ten.  (sigh)

Psalm 19:1-4: "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands
