My morning walk at my absolute favorite place to be, the beach on Hilton Head Island.
There are songs of worship popping in my head....'Count Your Blessings'.... 'On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand'.... 'Blessed Assurance'. I continue my walk in peace and silence, enjoying the warm morning sunshine and continuing to be thankful for the blessings of my life.
I came across a large starfish turned upside down and caught in the sand as the tide had left him stranded. His 'legs' were wiggling as he struggled.
With a funny sadness, I watched knowing there was nothing he could do to save himself. Isn't that like us? Without God, we are nothing! I carefully picked him up and returned him to the ocean for another chance, thinking how blessed I am that God continues to give me another day and another chance.
There were a few more stranded starfish on my walk today....some were perfect others deformed from the events of their lives.
Each one I carefully returned to the sea hoping to give them another chance.
Thank you Heavenly Father, for your unconditional love each and every day.
