The waves of the ocean rage as they crash upon the beach. I sit, looking out at the sea and the glistening of the water as it moves so gracefully towards my feet and washes over me. The feel of the water is so cool and relaxing as it covers me and then, ever so quickly, pulls back out into the ocean. I lay on my back, resting in the warm sand as the sun kisses my face with its heat. As I stare up at the beautiful blue sky I begin to think how anyone could deny that God is the creator of all this that gives this world so much beauty, that He is the creator of everything. I watch the clouds as they are being pushed across the sky by the wind. As the breeze blows and the saltiness of the air envelopes me and the sound of the rushing water soothes me I know that even though I may seem alone, God is right beside me. I can feel His presence in every detail of my surroundings. I can see His existence in everything around me. I lay here entranced in the peace of Him and His presence that floods over me. Soon the sun will begin to duck behind the clouds as dusk will soon approach. I will watch the sun set and the moon will rise with all the stars spread out so precisely in the dark sky. Tomorrow may never come and today will soon be an end. So the time I have now I will cherish and put to use as I remain in the peace of your presence to take me where you want me. For now I will say, Goodnight.
