Tonight, I post from our house in Destin, FL.  We arrived here last night about 9:30 and have had a marvelous day on the beach.  When we got down to the ocean’s edge this morning, I called the kids over and read Genesis 1:9 to them.  The verse says, “Then God said, Let the water under the sky be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear.”  As we stood at the water’s edge, I pointed out to sea and said to the kids, “Just like that, God commanded land to appear and now here we stand!”  If that don’t cause you to think a little, I don’t know what will. 

Courtney said later, “Joey, this is my deer stand.  You know how you feel when you get high in your tree and behold all God has created?  You know how that makes you feel?  Thats how I feel here on the beach.”  I sat back and thought about her statement.  Although the places are different, both of them do the same thing.  They bring us to worship!  My deer stand and her feet in the sand at the ocean scream to us the power and majesty of  Almighty God.

    Joey, this post meant a lot to me. We all have different ways of finding the quiet places that God provides for us. Thanks for letting me know of yours and Courtney’s.
