beach lovin’

Y’all.  Let’s be real here.  The beach is awesome.  No doubt about it.

While we were in San Diego, we got to go to the beach twice.

We spent one afternoon walking the beaches of Coronado Island.

We also enjoyed a beautiful morning at La Jolla, riding the waves and burying each other in the sand.

We rested and talked and basked in the Californian sun that is not quite as brutal as what beats down on us here in Colorado, and watched wave after wave creep into the shore.

The power and vastness of the ocean reminds me of my size: small.

It reminds me of Isaiah 51:15 and 16 –

“For I am the LORD you God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar – the LORD Almighty is His name.

I have put my words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of my hand –

I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth…”

It is good to be reminded of my size and meditate on the magnitude of the Lord.  He who controls the sea and created the heavens and the earth sees me and knows me…amazing.

Reflecting on our moments by the ocean finds me grateful and humbled.  Which is very good, I think.
