Serenity

IMG_0638

Sitting outside the balcony and looking at the calm sea, I can’t help but feel a sense of calm I’ve not felt in a long time. The kids were inside and for a good ten minutes, I was alone with only the sound of the waves to interrupt my thoughts.

I looked at the clear blue sky and said a silent prayer. I thanked God for giving me the strength when I felt weak and more faith when I needed it.

I couldn’t help but see that life is very much like the sea. There are times when its waves are calm and serene. But there are also times when the strong winds violently hurl the waves in a turmoil. Life can be tough and like the violent waves, it can be scary.

But the sea doesn’t stay that way. It will always return to serenity. And when life returns to this period of calm, you can’t help but be amazed.
