Do You See It?

The white capped waves crashed, splashing up over the rocks, spraying the boy. The stick, which served as a spear, was dropped into the crevice of the rocks. The sand was white, scrunching between my toes with each step. It was the setting I had hoped for when I left my house to unwind and relieve the tension of the day. Allie rushed with sudden force trying to free herself. The royal blue leash stretched to its capacity, holding her captive from the freedom of day. A few steps more...I reached to unhook her...FREE, she bolted across the sand, as though she were gliding over it. Chasing, jumping, pouncing and howling...it was a perfect day, even for a dog.

I reached inside my black bag, to try and capture a day that was like no other. The lens, somehow able to see the exact picture that mesmerized me...freezing the moment, making it possible to share. This was what I needed, a day to stop, look, and appreciate God's gift to each one of us. The day may seem, dull, sad, or overwhelming...stop and look around at God's beauty. It's there, slow down, stop running, take a deep breath, and look around you. Do you see it? Can you feel the peace overtaking you? Breathe again...it's real, it's amazing, just STOP and LOOK!




STOP AND LOOK!

DO YOU SEE IT?!?

I know...I sometimes forget how spoiled I am living near the beach in Orange Co., CA.

It's funny how I wanted to live near the beach my whole life and then when I finally move here, I take it for granted.

Need to stop and remind myself OFTEN!!
