The beach spoke to me yesterday. An afternoon appointment canceled, so I headed a bit south to a place I lived years ago–San Clemente, CA. It is a place with rich memories from years since as well. I took a nice walk on the beach, was hit up for weed by a skater kid, took some iPhone pictures and watched the sun set as I read my Bible reading for the day.
The colors of the water, sand, sky and reflections were sort of an epiphany yesterday afternoon. God was meeting me in the coral, aqua and gray hues of the waves as well as whispering in the wind. And yes, even the young guy who wrongly asked me for contraband was God’s way of having a sense of humor and teasing me.
All I am saying is that it really takes life slowing down to realize how much God is almost shouting at us. With sites so beautiful how could one not see God’s reflection off of the waves? I forget how much I need to take these moments. In fact, why not plan them instead of stealing a moment with God.

What does God speak to you through?
