SEA TALK                    

Dynamic and powerful...
The sea speaks it's esoteric message
To all who listen,

It never rests, Yet it brings peace and tranquil thoughts
To mind, as it's roaring rocks and lulls me,

Mesmerized by it's action,
I sit for hours to contemplate its movement
And the one who made it,

God is good to give me this joy...
Pure pleasure that it is, and somehow now
I know Him better.

The sound of many waters
Pour over the ocean's brim to engulf me,

But this vast expanse is no more than a cup of tea
In the midst of His cosmos...

And my tethered link in His universe
Is the Christ Child.

It is almost too much to understand.

Matthew 8:26-27. -- And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
27But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
