Awesome Creator, Awesome Creation

I never feel closer to God then when I am at the sea.  The feeling of love, awe and gratefulness is so overwhelming that often I can do nothing but stare in wonder.  Such an amazing creation, such a fantastic gift He has given us in life.  To see the waves crash, to see the birds thrive, to see each grain of sand placed at my feet.  It is difficult to put into words the heart moving, body gripping thrill I have to be one of God's children when I am enjoying something so beautiful as the sea.  Thank you Lord for all you have given us, all you have shared with us and all you have done for us.  We are often ungrateful and unworthy, yet as the amazing Father You are, You love us and forgive us.  For this I am grateful beyond words, but you can see into my heart.  Take a look, it is overflowing with your love and compassion Lord and for this I am truly thankful.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Emily loves to fly a kite and what a joy to watch her giggle and run as the gentle sea breeze lifts the kite behind her.
Jake and Alex on a mission to make drip castles before their hands freeze.
Love the beach at night and love these people!

Can you tell that I take a lot of pictures?  My kids are very experienced....

Sand Serpent built, now time to take a ride!
Boys try to conquer the Sand Serpent.

And now that photos are taken, time to DESTROY the Sand Serpent!

Bob was so into the Hunger Games that he could not put the book down.
Love this face
Hey, that's me!  Frisbee is not my game...
No matter how many times I dive past Philly, I have to take a photo of the skyline.  A city skyline is an awesome testament to man's creative and intelligent nature.  I don't think Philly was built by chance anymore then I was.
