    :-)

      Growing up in the Midwest it wasn’t till I was 14 that saw the Pacific Ocean. It was like something magical beyond words. It couldn’t be described as peaceful for you can hear the waves crashing. The world seems endless & so beautifully clear. It...

    I See God In the Ocean's Vast Beauty and Power

    Being near a vast ocean reminds me that God also is vast, beyond my imagining; that His presence fills the universe. My focus can become so narrow when I worry or feel life circumstances pressing on me. Yet looking out over the beautiful and powerful blue-green waters helps...

    The Pace Of Days

    I have always lived near the water. Ocean, bay, river. I need the ebb and flow of the tides, the quietly lapping of the waves at the shoreline, and the crashing of them on the rocks in a storm. It cleanses and refreshes me. I need the salt spray, and the scent of salt...

    My Home

    The one place I feel most at home and at peace with the world is floating out in the ocean on my surfboard. I don't even really need the waves, I can just sit there and think and be free. I can let all my worries and my cares float away with the tide and just relax.

    The Ocean

    The sunshine alone, makes me happy to be there, but the water and the waves are a huge factor, as is the colors... The ocean is so amazing to me, because it can be so calm and peaceful, or on another day in another part of the planet, it can be raging with huge crashing waves...
