The winter ocean
Sprays her mist with hungry zeal
Much to bird’s delight
I had cabin fever, once the fever from the flu broke! So I forced myself to walk up to the beach and, of course, I brought my phone in case I saw something I needed to take a photo of. I decided I had to visit the beach because my friend Brad, from Writing to Freedom, stated in a comment that he missed the beach so much and it made me realize that I did too.
I’m so happy I decided to go! The ocean was not the prettiest I have ever seen, but there is always beauty if you look for it. I was surprised how good I felt and was able to walk south much longer than I thought I would be able to. Then we turned around and I was completely shocked to feel a steady 20 mph wind in my face!!
And it reminded me of life. And it reminded me of how I have been walking in my life lately. When we walk with the wind we move effortlessly with ease. When we turn around and walk into the wind there is always struggle. In that moment it was so clear to me that God intended the wind to help us move through life. Just like a sailboat uses the wind no matter what direction it is heading we need to change our internal direction and use the wind of faith.
Just when I thought my day couldn’t get any better, a surprise visitor photobombed me!
May you always find a way to walk with the wind!
