Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope your day is fine!
Have you ever been to the sea?
It’s a place I just love to be.
If you’ve been, I think that is grand!
How wonderful is sea and sand!
But if you have not yet gone there,
I hope you can some day that’s fair.
A fair day gives us bright sunshine,
And helps a “sea-day” be so fine!
Sometimes when I just need to be
Away…quiet…alone with me…
I like to walk down by the sea
To hear what God might say to me.
A Leprechaun is quite unique,
Because it’s “natural” that we seek
The helps from God He always gives,
To all creation, each, that lives.
We don’t feel so “smart” as to fuss
About what God does give to us.
We know it’s always for the best,
And never just a “needless test.”
His Peace stays with us, as we live
Each day with just what God does give.
Our special task…His treasure-care…
He knows that we’ll be always where
We need to be to get it done
Before we go and have our fun!
But…back to being by the sea…
The breeze, the water, sand…and me…
It is so nice to feel the air…
And, simply, just to sit right there!
I watch the water move and flow…
It seems to know just where to go.
Sometimes it breaks upon the rocks
And acts like it is full of shocks!
Like being taken by surprise…
Its sprays are lovely to my eyes!
The rocks seem like they want to wait
And be real sure they won’t be late,
To be there when the waters come,
From where God sends the waters from!
So, I think that the joyful sprays
Are how the water laughs and plays!
The Sun joins in and plays a part
Of pouring glimmer, for a start…
Sun also warms and brightens days
And brings more joys in all these ways.
They work together…sun and sea,
And can make things go nice for me!
Water’s flying here…flying there!
Go up! Go down! Go everywhere!
But water, too, can misbehave!
That’s when the rocks do try to save
The waters’ flow and set it right,
In its direction, day and night!
These things I watch down by the sea.
Such gifts they are from God to me.
There’s so much more that I could tell.
More tales I know to tell so well!
But just for now let’s think of seas…
Cool waters, blue sky, sand, and breeze!
This thinking helps me know so well
That only God can really tell
Me all there is I need to know…
As I watch His waters flow.
I am so happy to be here.
I know there is no need to fear.
God made the rocks and sun and sea,
And, graciously, He made small me!
I am so glad we talked today!
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote 32)
