Coastal Contentment: Just Me and the Sea

Sand.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.  Simplicity at it’s best.

She hasn’t a care in the world!   

This is why I love the coast so much.   The stresses of life give way to rest and peace of mind.  It is true that every time our family has been to the coast, we have been on vacation.  But what’s that got to do with it, anyway?  Just because we get to wake up to the sound of the sea every morning and have no place to be; and just because we get to stay in our jammy pants until we decide to walk down the wooden steps to the beach; and just because we get to linger there as long as our hearts desire; and just because there are no responsibilities or chores…

Ok, so maybe the “vacation” part does have a little something to do with it.  But in spite of that fact, there is no denying the allure of the coast.  It’s intoxicating and addicting, in a good way.  Majestic mountains compel me to stand in awe of the Creator;  the ocean, to bow in reverence for Him

  The seashore is a dear friend, whom this Texas gal sorely misses.  Who doesn’t love the coast?  I just can’t imagine!  I know, however, there are some more enchanted by land’s end than others.  I am grateful that my middle-most child is a kindred spirit in my coastal love.  We both miss, and long to visit, our dear friend, the sea!

  1. Amen to all of that. I love the beach with something deep within me, and it makes me realize the greatness of God every time. Thanks so much for linking up at Beach Week.
