There’s a hint of sunlight as the cumulus sky lingers from the night. There’s no noise, no life, just you and l walking on the shoreline. The sea foam still remains but there’s no terns running in and out of it. Frozen in time, it’s you and me. God is holding our hands just as He holds our hearts. As though we were sent back to the beginning of time, there’s no one for as far as the eye can see. Even the ocean just lies on the beach for miles and miles. It looks like you could walk on it. It’s as if God is inviting us to participate but our fears make us all the more human.
The sun majestically rises as though it’s on a honeymoon too, casting diamonds across the ripples of the waters. I let go of your hand and wrap my arm around your shoulder. I ask you, “Is this where God intended for us to be thirty years ago?” Little did we ever guess what our Father in heaven had planned for us. Taking a deep breath, you breathe in the smell of the ocean atmosphere. A chill resonates as it’s always the coolest right before dawn.
The earth now begins to come alive, just as in the beginning of time. First was the little critters dancing on the shoreline; the gulls and terns take turns chasing the sand crabs in the bubbles. Then, breaking through the diamond reflections, a pod of porpoise are hunting for breakfast too.
Survival of the fittest begins on this first day of marriage. God has truly blessed the world that lies in front of us. I couldn’t be happier! As blessings flow like the mountain springs never-ending, our hearts pour out in unison. We share the cherished memories of our younger years.
The sun is now crawling out of bed and cat paws prance on the water where we fear to tread. A spectacular day on tap – a little breeze, some autumn air, a little salt and a lounge chair to boot.
Thank you, dear Lord. Thank you for finally blessing our lives. Though our youthfulness may have wilted some, our spirits race to first place into the curve. So blessed to share the secrets of life with the world before us, our dreams of success are resonating like the morning sun. God bless those who wake and pray and join the birds dancing on the shoreline! What a gift! Our life now complete, the thrill of another day to do God’s work lies ahead. What an awesome blessing!!
I love you!
