For more than 25 years, our family has made an almost annual pilgrimage to the Florida Emerald Coast with its wonderful white beaches and emerald-green waters. It is a time of reuniting with family members from all over the country and a chance to welcome those who have joined the family, either by birth or marriage.
The walks on the beach, kayaking among the dolphins, cornhole competitions, and family gatherings each evening for the sunset, give a much-needed break from the routines of life. In the background of all of these activities, the constant, rhythmic pounding of the sea’s waves on the beach supplies the soothing sounds that bring additional refreshment.
2 Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity.
3 The seas have lifted up, Lord,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
4 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea—
the Lord on high is mighty – Psalm 93:2-4 (NIV)
