Day 29 - 2015 - SEA

Today's word is:  Sea

And, I'm sharing a poem today...

"Walking by the Sea"

Walking barefoot
by the sea;
Running, jumping,
splashing free.
Squishy toes
beneath the sand;
Waves roll quickly to the land.

How far away they go...
Waters to the shore
may flow.

Back and forth;
in and out.
Crashing waves
seem to shout:

"Here I am, Lord,
send me now!
This I pray
my solemn vow!

Use my gifts
to share the word;
Where no one else
Your Word has heard."

Waves may flow
back and forth;
Shouting praises
of your worth.

Thank you, God,
for showing me,
all the glories
of the Sea.
