Ocean Reflections!

Summer series "Friday's Summer Fruits" with Donna Oswalt
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good..." Psalm 34:8

Summer breezes call to us from the ocean, waves whisper gently to our souls. I invite you to experience a short 20 seconds of "ocean reflection", although you may play it more than once to prolong the time. I took this short video at the Outer Banks in Corolla, NC about a month ago. While I confess to love sitting at the ocean's shore, I find even more awe at thinking about the Creator who spoke this into place. The latter chapters of Job always prick my imagination and carry it to the heights of the unpredictable. Chapters 38-41 give us more than a glimpse as God asks Job just where he was "when I laid the foundation of the earth".
Or Who enclosed the sea with its doors when bursting forth, it went out from the womb; when I made a cloud its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, I placed boundaries on it and set a bolt and door, and I said, "Thus far you shall come, but no farther; and here shall your proud waves stop"
Job 38:8-11

Take some time to listen to the waves, remembering that God set their boundaries. Hopefully you will have time to read these four chapters in Job and contemplate the immensity of creation! - dho
