Real Therapy

The best therapy I have ever experienced has come by the lone seaside stroll-
for You are there…
The ocean
 but a reminder 
of the immensity of your grace,
the sand granules, 
your mercies-
who can count? 
The sky is the expanse of your love everlasting,
each stone a memorial to your handiwork-
crashing waves testify to your mighty power,
sun shining or hidden
reflects your
and it’s right here in this place 
that I so clearly see your face,
and am renewed and refreshed 
in that still amazing grace.

Linking with dVerse for #OLN for the poem.

  3. oh i get some good therapy there on the shore of the ocean…i love the rhythm and the motion and life of it…and i def see god in those rhythms that we can strive for….


  4. Best kind of therapy if you can be in the heat. Seasonal changes now is perfect for therapy. You should have a code word, lest you will have a stigma. Even He cannot erase. Humans cannot hold water. Love your background and soundscapes
