The Place For … | Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea–Points of View

The sea. The place for …


Thoughts … To contemplate, ponder, focus.
Emptiness … To let go, exhale, relax.


Filling … To see, inhale, rejuvenate.
Cleansing … To wash clean within.


Forgiveness … You have been forgiven. Therefore, forgive.
Giving … Gratitude, glory, praise.


Receiving … Love, grace, mercy.
Quiet … Stillness, rest, knowing.

IMG_1952Noise … Breeze, waves, seagulls.
Laughter … Children, laughter. Families, laughter. Couples, laughter.


The sea.
The place for joy.
It brings out the best in all of us. ~ Alexandria Sage

“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.” ~ Arthur C. Clarke

    That second picture of the ocean is my favorite. Love that deep sea green and the detail you captured of that white cap is startlingly beautiful.

  3. Glorious!! Loved them all. Well done!

    • Thank you, Tina. Enjoy your time in China. It’s in the back of my mind. I have a nice opportunity to go next summer. The Great Wall is included. I’ll keep a close on your photos while you’re there!
      Take care. Always nice to hear from you. 🙂

  4. Okay, sorry to be a couple of days late, but these images or awesome. I SO TOTALLY love the sea–especially walking it in the early morning, looking for shells.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • Kathy, so nice to hear from you! I’m so glad you appreciate the photos. I just returned from the beach and it was such an incredible time. Took those photos last week. Like I said, the sea brings out the best in all of us. Guess that’s why God provided so much on our earth. We love the shells, too. We have a nice jar for the prettiest ones. They’ve earned a spot above our kitchen cabinets. Enjoy Ecuador. Again, nice to hear from you!

  5. The sea…one of my favorite places to go, and relax and admire God’s handiwork! The pictures are beautiful!
    I also wanted to let you know that I nominated you for Versatile Blogger Award – I’ve really enjoyed your blog, and your inspiration! Have fun!

    • I want you to know I REALLY appreciate this. I will try to get to accepting it but, like you, it may take awhile. Thank you for it. I’m very honored. I’m so glad you like my blog. I like yours as well. 🙂

  6. The sea indeed brings out the best in us. It help us appreciate the simple yet precious blessings in life. Beautiful post!
