I’ve Got Peace Like… an Ocean
Is there anything in this world more soothing, more peaceful, more restorative than the sound of the ocean? The crash of the waves, the call of the seagulls, the squeals of children, voices from nearby sunbathers and passing walkers – all muffled by the breeze blowing across my body. It doesn’t put me in a euphoria. I can still feel sad or lonely or other “downer” emotions. But what I’m sure to feel as well is peace. Maybe being in the presence of something as immense as the ocean reminds me that I’m also in the presence of an immense God. It’s the one time, the one place, I can feel myself let go. Now, if I could just bottle that peace and that release and take it home with me . . .
