Reflections from the Beach – Part 1

Reflections from the Beach – Part 1

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

– Genesis 1: 1-2

I love the beach.  In the summer, the warmth of the sun holds me and makes me feel like I am filled with love and joy through and through.  No matter how hot the temperature is; there is normally a cool breeze that can be felt at the beach.  To me, that cool breeze reminds me of God’s Spirit hovering over the waters.  It is always there right in front of us!  The Spirit is hovering over the waters and moving around each of us; cocooning us in love, mercy, and grace.

Next time you go to the beach, river, pond or even sit on the porch and feel a breeze blow over you, may you be reminded of God’s abounding steadfast faithfulness always surrounding you and may you be moved to give thanks.

In Christ’s light and love,

Pastor Pat
