Scenic Sunday: God's Masterpiece

"Sometimes we are so busy with everyday life that we forget to appreciate the beauty that God has placed before us. Scenic Sundays are about stopping and smelling the roses. And while you're smelling those roses, take a picture so that others can share in your appreciation for the beauty of His creation. So pretty please come join us for Scenic Sundays. Maybe we'll see things in a different light. "
Head over to Pieces of Miti and join in on Scenic Sundays and remember how blessed we are by God's Creations!

Our family is blessed to live in a beautiful place. This photo was taken while my husband and I were staying at The Heritage House the night of our Wedding. It was taken while sitting on the balcony. We live in Fort Bragg California on the Mendocino Coast. At any given time I can drive down Hwy 1 and see beautiful seascapes. God really is Good isn't he? I also would like to share this poem with you all, it touched my heart as I read it this morning. It is so true, and it goes perfectly with this photo! I also thought I would enter Spiritual Sundays/ this week.

Jesus, Captain of Life’s Sea

I have a friend in Jesus

Who guides me through the gale

A first mate and a skipper

Who helps me to set sail.

He offers strength and guidance

A helmsman at the wheel

An ever-steady beam of light

A fortress made of steel

He’s the master of the ocean

My refuge and my rock

A harbor that I turn to

My anchor at life’s dock.

He’s a mighty sailing warrior

A helping hand indeed

A pilot through the churning waves

He meets my every need.

He’s the One I always run to

When the waves won’t let me be

The lighthouse that I turn to

On a rough and troubled sea.

He’s a smoothly sailing vessel

A refuge from the storm

The gentle breeze that sends me to

An island, sweet and warm.

He’s a brave and fearless skipper

A shelter from the heat

Water when I’m thirsty

A vessel filled with wheat.

He’s a sure and steady sailor

My Captain on life’s sea

No matter where I journey

He goes along with me.

  4. You are SO lucky and it's nice to hear you do not take it for granted to live in such a place of beauty! So many others do not take time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Thank you for sharing it....I live inland (Midwest) and we never see the ocean! Blessings! Lu
