The sea has been very turbulent over the past few days; I just managed to capture this moment, yesterday afternoon, as a rolling wave hit the harbour wall. The navigation light is framed by the wave, and the promenade light standa sentinel over the whole scene.
It can seem as though we are tossed about on a rough sea in these moments in which we live. We all deal with things in our own way, but sometimes, I have to confess, I feel somewhat adrift. Each day brings a mix of news which can be relentless in its effect on my mental state.
Waves and light kind of summarise my days. Unexpected moments of suprise or insight bring light into the day, and help to regain perspective. For me, this is the work of the Holy Spirit of God who reaches out to all of us in a multitude of ways. The harbour navigation light looked like it was about to be overwhelmed, but after the wave passed. the light continued to do it’s work.
I simply share this with you from my own perspective, as I do each day. I hope and pray that my thinking resonates with yours. I have no answers, but live with masses of questions. But with the profound belief that through all the storms of life, for each of us, the love of God is poured out through the Holy Spirit,..into our hearts.
