Eyes to See

"Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters; They have seen the works of the LORD, And His wonders in the deep."   - Psalm 107:23-24
My son seems like a wholly different person than some years ago when I caught him unawares, gazing at the power and enormity of the sea.

I can still see the awe in his eyes as he later remarked, "The ocean's angry today, Dad.".  Josh had gotten a glimpse of His power.

Images like this mean more and more to me as I get older - for all the usual sentimental reasons.

But I think I'm drawn to this particular picture because - regardless of all the opportunities and experiences I've been blessed to have - I think I still feel like Josh did at the moment I took that picture.

It's as if I'm continually standing on the edge of something much larger and more mysterious than I can quite comprehend.  The feeling is oppressive and foreboding and crisp and exhilarating - all at the same time.   That's just how Adventure feels.

Life is truly an adventure for those who have eyes to see.

Father, give me eyes to see.
