A Place of Peace

The kids and I are reading Case for A Creator for Kids and while this version might be for the younger generation, I've found it convicting and a great reminder the One who created life.

It's one of the reasons why I love going to the game park. I can't watch the huge variety of animals and bird life without believing there is a Creator.

The book of Psalm states it perfectly in the beginning of chapter nineteen. "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork."

One of the things I enjoy the most in Mozambique is the sea. The vivid blues of the water, the constant crash of the waves against the shore, and the lingering smell of saltwater in the air. For me, sitting on the beach and watching its every changing moods is a place of peace.

While I'd can't live at the sea, we are currently looking the possibilities of building a house near the bay. Rent keeps climbing, but we found land for a good price. The photos (except for the lion) are views near the land. What I love about the water, whether the ocean or the bay, is not just the sense of peace it brings me, but also the reminder of the greatness of the God we serve.

What about you? Where is the place that you find the most peaceful? What place reminds you that God is real?

Be blessed,
