Weekly Photo Challenge–Thankful

WordPress’s prompt for this Weekly Photo Challenge is Thankful.

I have so many blessings for which to be thankful, it’s hard to find a place to begin. Since it is a photo challenge, this is my inspiration. I am thankful to have been transplanted in such a beautiful place, where the ocean meets the shore.

The Sea
The ebb and flow cycles continually, eternally.
It rocks and rolls,
And sways like a pendulum to and fro.
Marking time, ticking by.
Day after day, the same.
Constant.

 

Trip to the Shore

Vintage Workshop

I remember the first time I saw the Atlantic Ocean. Up until then, I couldn’t figure out why one couldn’t see the continents that lie on the other side. Well, I found my answer…there is a huge hump in the midst of the sea! Apparently one has to take a boat out to the top of the hump, and THEN Africa and Europe will surely become visible.

My mom collected shells–or rather broken pieces of shells–and rocks as we plodded through the sand. I inherited them, too. They sit in a box in the garage. I sorted through them recently, looking for some interesting adornments to add to a butterfly oasis we were creating. It brought back fond memories of that day. 

I don’t know that my mom ever owned a bathing suit, she always claimed to be afraid of the water. She was fully clothed the day of our visit. In my mind’s eye, I can still see her, bent over, looking for those treasures. 

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20
