Fish-man and the Boogie Board

He stands by the edge of the water, watching for a moment, loving the pounding of the surf and constant ebb and flow – it reminds him of God’s immutability (never changing).  But before long, he’s in with a smile of delight.

My husband LOVES the ocean!  I like the ocean, I can even say there are aspects of the ocean that I do love, but it’s been seven years since I’ve been IN the ocean and I’m not getting any younger.  So, while fish-man is doing his thing – hopping and flopping and bobbing – I stand at the edge.  I’m up to my knees but I’m afraid!  He sees it and comes to take my hand.  With his help, I’m soon hopping and flopping and bobbing as well, albeit not quite so enthusiastically beside my best friend!

Then we get the boogie boards.  Now this is fun! AND, I’m not so afraid – I have something to hold on to and it keeps me afloat.  That was yesterday!  Today, a storm is coming and the waves are hard and huge – too much for my bark, so small and frail!  But not for fish-man!  He is in there having the time of his life!

So, what’s the lesson?  This life can be scary on a good day!  My mom always said, I don’t see how people live without the Lord.”  I have to agree!  If you have trusted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, then you have Someone to hold on to no matter how rough the water gets!    (If not, you may want to take a look at ‘What is Salvation’ – just type it in the search area.)  Just don’t let go!!!  Or maybe you do need to let go of whatever it is that is keeping you from holding on to Jesus Christ!

I've been blogging for several years now, and continue to be thankful for the opportunity to share my heart, as well as hone my writing skills. When I was urged to write about my passion, three things came to mind: my God, my family, and music. I am a born-again believer of Jesus Christ. My doctrine is Baptist, my stand is fundamental. I love the Word of God and want to share how it has changed my life. It is my primary passion; however, my family is the close second! God has blessed me with a wonderful godly husband who has led me and discipled me in my walk with Christ. God also gave us three wonderful children who, along with their spouses, all love the Lord and are passionate soldiers in God's army as well. Add seven grandchildren, and my heart is overflowing with praise to my God! Music comes in third and is a great burden on my heart. We all need to find what is acceptable and pleasing to God in this area. Like every area of the Christian life, we cannot just choose music because we like it.
