seeking solace

The sea is his,
for he made it…

Psalm 95:5

dscn3331
(Gulf of Mexico, Santa Rosa Beach / Julie Cook / 2016)

There are those who have Lourdes…
Others have Fatima
For some it is Medjugorje
and for others still, it is Guadeloupe.

There are places all around this world of ours that pilgrims have traveled
for centuries in hopes of…
a healing,
a miracle,
or merely peace…

for me…it is the sea…
It is to and for the sea that I yearn…
when I feel most in need of soothing…

Should you not fear me?” declares the Lord.
“Should you not tremble in my presence?
I made the sand a boundary for the sea,
an everlasting barrier it cannot cross.
The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail;
they may roar, but they cannot cross it.

Jeremiah 5:22

    It is the sea for me too Julie. I could spend hours sitting on the rocks down at Grandes Rocques in Guernsey.

  2. It tis for me too and it has been so long since we have been able to go. Go and enjoy my friend! 🙂 ❤
