A Gifted Life


Walking across the beach,

feeling the gritty warm texture of the sand against my feet,

I think about life.

Life as it is now and how life will be.

Hearing the waves swish back and forth and watching them hit against the shore,

I realize the beautiful creation God has given us.

The deep blue beach waves represent hope and ambition to achieve goals in life.

I realize how fortunate I am to be alive.

The water, being ice cold, and the calming of the winds, put me in a state of relief.

As I lay on my back looking up, I feel my body getting heavier against the water.

I float.

Life, extremely short and unpredictable must be lived with purpose,

and a whole hearted meaning to fathom and simply not regret.

I live.
