An Ocean of Knowledge

By Sandra M. Z. Armstrong

The ocean was calm today. Waves gently rolled back to meet those coming forward. How much are our lives like this? We often look backwards into our past for the strength to move forward again. The ocean changes minute to minute like our lives. We are forever adjusting. When the water gets murky, we can’t get a clear view. When the waves crash upon us, we stay with our faith that God will see us through. When another wave hits, we hold onto our faith in the greater good of mankind and ourselves. We seek the peaceful ebb and flow and yet sometimes it is too hard to overcome the hurdles, jump the waves and land on our feet in the silky sand. We know that better days are ahead. Days when it is easier to float, swim, paddle and surf in the joy of the water that surrounds us.
