Over the dune

Posted by

It's Sunday, Y'all!

Almost a week ago now, the wind and waves of Tropical Storm Debby were buffeting the beach and dunes of Anna Maria Island. The area I live in received in the range of 10-15 inches of rain from the storm in just a day and a half. Normally placid, sunny, and congenial, this rough weather transformed what we laughingly call "paradise" into anything but that.

But, we take the good with the bad. "This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it!" Or so the psalmist's old saying goes...

Truly.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Many is the time I've walked across a dune like this to the sea . . there is wonderful feeling of transition of the senses - the sounds, light and sense of space all change.

This is a beautiful image that really illustrates your experience and description. Creation has many aspects, personal and impersonal. Weather is Nature, Herself, our very life in form. Can be so spectacular and humbling and destructive. Must respect it, and as you say, except in gratitude and trust, that which we are given this day.

A common view, but you've done it very well. It's a scene that's dear to all who love the Florida shores.
VERY NICE!

"This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it!" ... and we know that now matter how bad the weather may be on a given day, God brings light in the morning.

Fear not Glenn, all of that rain keeps your grass nice and green :-)
