Sitting On The Edge Of The Sea

The Beach.The Ocean.The Sea  
i have always loved it and been in awe of it, which is why i can't help but share its varied beauty with you.  Everyday all four of us look out the window amazed by what we see.  We are super thankful to have found a rental with extraordinary views, which isn't very hard to do when you live on a peninsula on an island.   No matter where we drive, we can't get away from the water.  Perfectly fine with me.  

i have come to love and appreciate the sea even more.  Every hour of the day produces a different colour in both the sky and water.  From where we sit we can see the undercurrents beneath the ocean's surface.  We watch the ocean churn from stormy winds, listen to the waves crash on rocks below and gaze upon clouds effortlessly changing their colour.  Stunned by beauty everyday.  Who knows how long we will get to live here but for now we are loving our front row seats to an ever changing and brilliant art show.  

To quote Riley:
  "We sit in the front row of God's art gallery and everyday He paints something different." 

Waves crash over holes
Covering footprints and sand
Then slips away.

"The song of the sea...  Yes, it's blue in the sunshine", she said, "and it's grey in the rain.  I've seen it golden with sunlight, silver with the moonlight and black as ink at night.   It's never the same twice."
The  Man Whose Mother Was a Pirate ~ a  NZ children's story

"And there was the sea, all jumping with sparkles in the sunshine, as far as ever you could see." 
~ Milly Molly Goes to the Sea

He made the moon for the seasons; the sun knows the place of its setting. Thou dost appoint darkness and it becomes night.
Psalms 104:19

The heavens are telling of the glory of God: and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.  Day to day pours forth speech.
Psalms 19:1
