I have the day off and I am sitting alone facing the Atlantic Ocean. I have discovered the beach for locals, it’s called Sandbridge, and no longer venture to the tourist trap that is Virginia Beach actual. It is a beautiful day. The waves are too powerful and no one is allowed in the water. I just went for a walk and my steps joined in harmony with the crashing waves and the snapping bubbles of the surf. I sang praises to my Lord and felt my Jesus with me.
The past two days of work were nice, and David and I visited Cindy’s on Wednesday night and enjoyed some yummy pizza. Oh, and yesterday I called Lindy, and the two of us had the best conversation in the world.
I miss her.
I want her to come and see me.
So, here I am. I will turn 22 after this weekend, I’ve experienced the beginnings of wonderful new friendships, and I’m facing a body of water that touches Africa, a land from which I have just returned. And I’m about to start film school!
David has complimented me many times on how well I fit in with all the different groups of people. Yet, he also says that when I blend in, I do it without changing who I am.
Wow, 19 pelican just flew over my head, all in a straight line. Perhaps one day I can blend in with them and fly away.
But it is nice to have this sand, this earth, while I can. I’ll be able to fly some day, but it is not now. Now, I have the joy of sitting in complete peace with myself. I can’t believe the world is full of so much beauty and so much love.
I love you God.
I love you.
