Catch a wave.

Life is like riding the waves on the sea.
While on vacation in Florida, I was watching the waves roll in to the shore.
Each wave comes in, then crashes on the shore, then is pulled back out to sea.
Who knows what happens under the water as the current takes the wave.

I want to ride each wave. Experiencing what happens as it rolls across the sea.
Whether it's a huge one, or just a small rolling wave.
My life has it's wonderful celebratory moments, and those quiet, peaceful ones that all bring untold joy.

While enjoying the ride, I'm aware there are under currents.
Life is full of unexpected situations.
Sometimes things happen that are heart wrenching....we sometimes come up for air, feeling battered by the storms, waves, sand, and terrible things we run into while being pushed and pulled by the current of life.

We climb out of the foamy waves, stand up, look out over the water, and see more waves to ride.
With more beauty, more experiences, more joy, more under currents, and the One that is always there....riding each and every wave, and current with us.
Catch a wave.


  1. Reminds me of the Beach Boys song - "Catch a wave and you're sitting on top of the world!"

  2. So lovely, Debbie. I find the sea simply enchanting, and love how sitting along the shore fills my heart and soul! Truly nothing quite like it.
