How to Help Change the World as a Surfer

 

As many of you who follow me know, not only do I live in coastal Rhode Island, but I love this tiny state that boasts big beauty, breathtaking scenery and diverse geography.

Although my guest, Jay Recinto, is sharing a message for Surfers and Surfer wanna – be’s like me, I think it is a great message which applies to all of us as people. This earth is not our own, yet we all have a hand in it.

As local beach lovers we ask you to share this post if you agree with the message.

Lord, You are not unlike the ocean

I’ve seen sharks in the ocean, it hasn’t made me get out of the ocean; that’s for sure.

I am still on my little blog break, but as many of you know I am a fan of Sharks and Shark Week. Although I do not care for all of the Shark Week shenanigans, I do appreciate the efforts of researchers, marine biologists  and many others who share fascinating facts about these amazing, mysterious creatures. As one who is drawn to all of God’s Creation, I can’t help but ponder the diversity, beauty, darkness and brutality that co-exist in our current reality.

 

My mother asked me recently, “Why do you like Sharks so much? Why not Dolphins?”  Why am I fascinated by Sharks? I find all of Creation to hold aspects and mystery about the Creator Himself  that we have yet to understand and within them lies dormant incomprehensible truth. Why am I fascinated with Sharks? That’s easy…God made them and in them also lies a part of The Creator’s divinity and  power. NO, I don’t worship them, but respect them as part of His ultimate Creation. I also love Dolphins, Mom. I just don’t hate or reject creatures (or people) just because they behave true to their nature (could do a whole post on that).

Summer Devotional Giveaway (RJD Celebration Week!)

It’s hard to believe that June is almost over and July is about to make it’s annual appearance. Summer is really here. I can hear the sighs. Whether your Summer is relaxed, busy, jam-packed with activities and commitments or leaned back and lazy, I know you could use a sweet word of encouragement and a few breezy mornings when you press pause on L-I-F-E to ponder that which is not fleeting.

An extra copy of one of my very favorite devotional books made it’s way into my hands and I am giving you the chance to enjoy it for yourself!

Morning Beach Walk With My Nokia Lumia Phone and a GIF(t)

OK, so I still am trying to figure out how to use my new toys. One is my Surface Tablet, as many of you know. The other is my new best friend phone
I wanted to share the photos from my beach walk today, but I so love the one below, which I was able to download as a GIF. It’s just as if you are with me here in Narragansett, RI! 

I so love to be able to share the local Rhode Island beauty with you!
