MORE SEA THERAPY, PLEASE

I NEED MORE SEA THERAPY!!!

Not just for my allergies and illness, 
   but for my soul...
The sea is where I cast my worries...and watch as they drift away on the tides.
The sea is where I truly love to talk to God...
where I feel Him all around me...as I gaze at the vastness of the waters.




I need to wash away my thoughts...

     all my fears...

and all my tears...
                              

I need to embrace the knowledge that all my needs  will be met by my Lord...

He takes care of the birds...he provides for all their needs.

And He says He will do the same for me...










I need to TRUST HIM...
     and let my fears fly away in the wind...  
                                               
    











And when I do that, the sea will be calm...
    my soul will be soothed...


And I will be a testimony of His greatness...
     of His care...His love.


Life is not always smooth sailing...it's often rough, with waves crashing all around...even over me.

But God promises that He will be with me...
   that He cares for me...and that I will get through
all that life throws in my direction.

I am posting this with OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY

As I wrote this...my husband came into my office with the confirmation of our company's first SALE! 
And I was just invited to fly to Michigan (all expenses paid) to train to teach in-home cooking classes next week...

This is so beautifully written, it brings peace just reading it. You awaken a passion for the sea within me all the time. I hope all is okay. You mean a lot to our family and we think and talk about you with love!

And...fun, fun! I love your added good news. I hope you post about the cooking stuff. =)
