All Tides & All Shores?
Have you ever just sat on the beach and watched the waves come in and then quickly retreat? I wonder what do they bring and what do they take away?
Maybe if we took a moment to reach out and test that water with all of its secret beauty we could find something that we only think we have. All the money in the world can not buy it. Still we often let it go out in the outgoing tides, for they sometimes are stronger than the incoming tides.
No! you do not have to live on the ocean to see or feel the effects of the tides of your life.
As I stand here and feel the wave that splashes against me, I wonder what it may have brought? Did it bring LOVE & TRUST?
"LOVE ALL, TRUST A FEW---WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE"
Maybe I will stand here and wait for the next wave, for it looks to be much larger?
Yes, this wave of loyalty is sometimes given by others than human beings. It has a power that the next wave can not wash away---it is pure and remains high on the shore.
A warm salty wave may speak loudly in a time of grief---with one lonely tear.
For many, this wave has had the power to reach high above the shore line.
As I again stand here I wonder will the out-going tide with its beauty ---wash away more of the grains of sand than the incoming tide brought in?
