Beach Retreat

Beach Retreat

As life's burdens collapse on my shoulders
 And reality knocks me off my feet
 I realize that time has again arrived
 to escape to my beach retreat

 I feel the closest to my Lord possible
 as the golden sand envelops my toes
 Here I enjoy our sacred relationship
 as my spiritual faith in him grows

 Witnessing waves breaking into a clear blue sky,
 Tell me, who could ask for more ?
 What better place to relish God's work
 than sitting on the ocean's shore

 I have yet to outgrow my beach retreat
 in spite the years that I grow older
 I'll always associate the beach as a refuge...
 A place where I can encounter the vast meaning of life

 a place to lean on my Lord God's shoulders.
