As I walked along the beach I collected the spoils from the ocean. Most of the shells I found were imperfect, but all were unique. Some were cracked or broken, they were colored as only a master painter could paint them and none were the same. I found one that had a hole just big enough to put on a chain and wear as a necklace. It was perfect as though I had gone to the store and purchased a necklace made especially for me.
As the day and the sun passed over the wet sand became dry, and the
night ocean rolled upon the beach and drove new seaweed and driftwood up the shore and there were new treasures on the beach the next morning.
This reminds me of Gods love. A love that is so vast and so deep that it is truly endless. The tide of his love washes over me at regular intervals bringing up treasures, all laid out in the SON light for me to pick up. Treasures of peace, joy, and happiness; sometimes these treasures come in the form of brokenness, or require a breaking in my spirit. Breaking that places the next color on the canvas of my life by the hand of The Master Painter. And when the sun dances across the sky and causes dryness in the very depth of my being; the night comes, and the tide of Gods love rolls in, and the next morning peace, joy, and happiness are abundant once again.
