The Ocean and Sandcastles in the Sand

Looking back over my recent posts, I realized that I haven't posted my beach pictures.  I posted on my facebook page so I'll not share this time with my facebook friends.  They'll have to search for me this time.

Oh, my.  I must show you my ocean- the place of sweet release. 
Ahhhhhh, selah!

I honestly took this one evening.  I think it looks like a postcard or print.  It's my next painting project.

Does it get any better than this?!
The weather was perfect-overcast at times with just enough of a breeze to keep you comfortable.
It usually rained in the afternoon.  On Monday, I swam in the ocean while it rained.
Why not?

I didn't make a sand castle at all.  My baby didn't like the sand.  The little girl who made this castle was upset and crying because the tide was coming in.  She said, "Do you think it's gonna get my castle? Do you think it will be here tomorrow?" 

The sad thing is we sometimes build our own sandcastles in the sand only to find them gone with the tide.
I remember a song I sang as a little girl in Sunday School...

The foolish man built his house upon the sand
The foolish man built his house upon the sand
The foolish man built his house upon the sand
And the house on the sand went SPLASH!

The rains came down and the floods came up
But the house on the rock stood FAST!

What am I building on?

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.
My baby boy will now teach his baby boy, what to build on. 
I hope I got it right.


  1. Such a sweet post. Such a great reminder of What/Who is important and Where we should be building.

  2. They are adorable in the pool. You and David got it right.

  3. The beach is spectacular. Where is this? It reminds me of Indian Rocks Beach Florida

  4. Helen, the beach is Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. One of the best!
