Back to the beach

Back in a very busy place.
Taking care of things as best I can, while at the same time trying to relax and enjoy.
Ah, I know what to do...

Escaping to the ocean-
once more it must be done!
There to walk along the shore
away from everyone...
and away from everything?
Here, though, I can think;
and as We talk about those 'things,'
they begin to shrink!
As I am walking with The One
Who's in complete control,
and He desires I release
each 'thing' to Him in whole!
For He can handle anything
and everything at all;
and, in the restless ocean waves,
I listen to Him call.

What a blest escape from
everything that has to be.
One day away from life that takes
so much from such as we!
One day so filled with Jesus and
the workings of His hand:
the mighty sea...the empty sky...
and miles and miles of sand.

No matter how much time it takes, Jesus never says "I gotta go now."
No matter how far we walk down the beach, He never tells me "It's time to turn around."
And no matter what is on my mind to talk about, He never says "I don't wanna hear it!"
So much happening.  A lot of things that I don't want to deal with or even think about.  I must, however.  And I know I will be able to when We are done with our walk.
