Real Therapy





The best therapy I have ever experienced has come by the lone seaside stroll-
for You are there...

The ocean
 but a reminder 
of the immensity of your grace,
the sand granules, 
your mercies-
who can count? 

The sky is the expanse of your love everlasting,
each stone a memorial to your handiwork-

crashing waves testify to your mighty power,

sun shining or hidden
reflects your
presence...

always-

and it's right here in this place 
that I so clearly see your face,
and am renewed and refreshed 
in that still amazing grace.


Linking with dVerse for #OLN for the poem.

and Create with Joy for Wordless Wednesday for the pic.

  1. Hi Dawn! Oh yes, I love the beach too. Something about all those waves...seems like the reflection of eternity on earth. And I love the wind in my face and blowing my hair. It's like heaven.

    Beautiful verse today.

  2. Oh, I feel the same. There is something very therapeutic about being at the ocean shores. I especially like going to sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. When I look out at the ocean, I realize how small and insignificant I am....and how great HE is.

  10. Best kind of therapy if you can be in the heat. Seasonal changes now is perfect for therapy. You should have a code word, lest you will have a stigma. Even He cannot erase. Humans cannot hold water. Love your background and soundscapes
