I took this photo the other day. Nick and I were at Alki enjoying what’s left of summer. We just got back from Spokane and we didn’t feel like it was time to go home yet. So we took a walk for a little bit.
This photo made me happy. It doesn’t really compare to the real thing, ’cause the real thing was more vivid and bright. I was so tempted to jump in, but the water was freezing. I stared at it for a long time though. I thought about how God talks to us in ways like the ocean. He shows us the things He made to make us happy.
I sat close to the water. Closed my eyes and thanked God I’m alive. That doesn’t happen often. But I think it should. I don’t think I thank Him enough for that.
