Walking In Light

There are not many places that I would rather be for a relaxing day, than at the beach.  It is so wonderful to be able to sit in a comfortable lounge chair with your toes dangling in the sand and listen as the soothing sounds of the tide virtually wash away every ounce of life’s stress with each and every wave.  Even though there are plenty of other good ways to unwind, I guess this would be my top choice.  It has been said that your worst day at the beach is better than your best day stuck at the office.  Perhaps the thing that I like best about the beach is that it is totally out there in the open.  The peaceful sunlight seems to burn away all fear of the unknown.  When you are at the beach, it is actually difficult to think about the trouble that awaits you back in the “daily grind” of life.  In fact, you have to close your eyes and concentrate really hard to forget the peacefulness of the beach and mentally place yourself back into the difficulty of life’s demands.  Beaches are truly one of God’s gifts of TRANQUILITY to man.

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who do you think you are?  That is a question you have probably heard at one time or another in your life.  Maybe you set out to do something that you had never attempted before and your mom or dad hit you with it.  Perhaps you ignored your baseball coach’s sign for you to bunt, and instead swung for the fences, striking out in the process.  If so, you may have heard him ask “Who do you think you are… Babe Ruth”?  Most of the time, that question has a negative connotation to it.  Often, it implies that you have no business holding to that type of self-worth or setting such lofty expectations for your life.  None of that matters, though, because today that question is going to take on a whole new meaning.
