The Power of Nature

Real Estate Agent with Rector Hayden, Lexington, Ky

Respect for the Creation

My lovely wife Kathy and I have spent the last three days enjoying the cool breezes wafting over the balcony of ouir second story room here at Lois Jane's B&B in Southport, North Carolina.  Monday we took the ferry  to Kure Beach.  Mostly we just sat in awe watching the waves break and sipping our tea. Yesterday we drove to the end Oak Island and walked to the confluence of the river with the ocean.  

The ocean has been Kathy's favorite place to visit since growing up near the beach in Southern California. My childhood years were spent living in the mountains of North Idaho.  Those years of fishing, hiking and especially picking those tasty huckleberries created a certain affinity for the rougher terrain in my soul.  However as Kathy and I have journeyed together the past 38 years the ocean has captured my heart.  

Finding places to really meditate and "get away" from the hustle and bustle of the real estate world are so crucial to my soul.  I sometimes tell myself I can do that anywhere.  And it is true sitting on my deck and watching the birds feed and gazing at the miracles in my garden can draw me close to God.  However the shear power of the waves pounding the beach, the undertow pulling the sand from under my feet and the seemingly endless grains of sand bring me to a place of worship and adoration not found in the mountains.  I am reminded of this Psalm..  

  The seas have lifted up, O LORD,
       the seas have lifted up their voice;
       the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.

  Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
       mightier than the breakers of the sea—
       the LORD on high is mighty.

As I sit here thinking about the joys of my life I am again overwhelmed by the gift of my wife.  Kathy sharing her energy, joy of life and passion for learning has enriched my life abundantly.  Her shared joy for the ocean is one of many treasures she has given me these many years.
