I’m starting a series of poems with an ocean theme. I’m calling it ‘Discovering God Through the Depths.’

Why Do I Love the Ocean?

My heart sings when I smell the ocean air,

walk on the sandy shore and hear the crashing waves.

Why do I love it so?

Could this be where I feel so connected to the Creator of this world?

I hear His voice through the crashing waves.

I know He’s more brilliant than the sun.

His thoughts of me outnumber the sand.

The depths of the ocean will never compare to how deep His love is for me.

Oh, what love there is from my Savior to me.
