Searing sun --
Flowing breeze --
Sand beneath one's feet --
Blue sky kissing
The sandy shore --
A quiet hum
Of nature all about --
Alone but not lonely --
Birds on wing --
Waves touching
The shore
With a sweet embrace --
Time to think
Without interference --
Living today --
Waiting for tomorrow --
Dreaming of yesterday --
Sinking in the sand
Foot to foot --
Pondering one's thoughts
Without the rush of life --
Having dreamy thoughts --
Looking for renewal
And refreshment --
Hearing God
Without noisy life --
Looking across
The horizon
With eyes of the soul --
Knowing that tomorrow
Will hold the plan
Of God --
Walking along
As if there is no end --
Touching nature
With body and soul --
Listening with your heart
And hearing
With your soul --
Living in the now
And realizing
That tomorrow
Will change the sandy
Artistry upon the shore...

It is as if
The most important
MOMENT
In time is the ONE
Spent with God alone...

As you walk along
A lonely beach
You may discover that
That ONE MOMENT
Is the most IMPORTANT
Within your reach...

ONE MOMENT
Spent with God alone
As along the beach
You take a walk
And share your heart
With God
Will be the very BEST
MOMENT
Spent in this life...

Remember
That to spend
ONE MOMENT
With God ALONE
Is the best time
Spent by anyone
Who has ever
Walked along
The sandy shore
Beneath the skyward
View...

How true - ONE MOMENT can make a huge difference, and is really all we ever have. I love this part:
"Listening with your heart
And hearing
With your soul --
Living in the now
And realizing
That tomorrow
Will change the sandy
Artistry upon the shore..."
