Today, my husband and I set sail on the Music Boat. What a huge blessing for us as we just celebrated our 15th anniversary! There’s a lot to be excited about: amazing concerts from some of our favorite artists, unlimited servings of delicious food, exploring sunny ports of call, etc. However, you know what excites me more than those things? Watching a blazing orange sun set over nothing but a vast expanse of ocean (and maybe even getting up early enough to watch it rise on the other side of the boat!) Gazing at the full moon in a dark sky and it’s reflection in the shimmering sea. Exploring undersea life with the help of a mask and snorkel and being amazed by the diversity of God’s creation. These are the things that fill up my senses (as John Denver would say).
The good news is that you don’t have to take a cruise to a tropical paradise to appreciate what God has created. Just take some time to “unplug” from the noise and look around around. Go take a hike on one of the many trails in our area or head to a lake for a few hours and soak in the view. When you take time to appreciate God’s creation, it’s an act of worship to and communion with Him. I’ll leave you with this verse on which to reflect…it’s from Nehemiah 9:6- “You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”
I have been working at WBFJ since September 2004 when God threw me out of the boat I was riding in and set me on a new and wonderful course. I love co-hosting the morning show, although the lack of sleep does make me a bit loopy at times.
