I drive by the beach to be consoled by mother nature
to see her beauty
and to feel her rhythm of life
I am sad to see lights litter the landscape
flashing an emergency
for a soul
who thought he could become one with the waves
the currents were strong
and they ripped him out to sea
it was swift
and it was clean
not too much to think about
from wence he came he returned
and the boats searched till darkness
Morning arises and he has not been found
I pray for his soul
I pray for those he left behind
I pray he understands heaven
In a moment – any moment
there are choices to be made
we live in a life with free will
I’m just not sure that we all understand the significance of tiny moments
seemingly innocuous decisions that can alter a life –
end a life
As I walk on in my journey here
I pray to be aware of all moments
to be present in my life and to notice the really important times.
I walked up to the beach to take photos of the rough surf that claimed this man’s life to include in this post. I did have a little fear because his body had not yet been found. The beach was deserted, except for a woman walking with her toddler who asked me to take their photo.
When I got home and looked at the photos, I noticed little lights in the surf in one of the pictures. I zoomed in and there were so many.
I couldn’t imagine what they were…specks on the camera lens…? The sun was not out so I didn’t think it was a reflection of the sun. So I zoomed in again on what appeared to be the largest one….
And I saw an angel!!! I am so utterly full of joy!
I was afraid to go to the beach for fear that I might see the poor man’s body, but I went and I got to see his soul. I believe this is a miracle. And it once again shows me that I should not live in fear…love is where I want to come from.
Angels in the surf
come to take him home
tell him he is safe
he is loved
