It is with great pleasure I bring you this Tuesday Treasure from my friend and fellow author, Jayne E Self...
I loved Jacque Cousteau’s TV Specials. As a kid growing up in central Canada the seemingly infinite mysteries of the ocean mesmerized me. I dreamed of becoming an oceanographer. I read, studied, memorized. And then I got on a boat.
I quickly discovered a degree of motion sickness that trains, planes or automobiles cannot begin to engender.
In His graciousness, however God has satisfied my passion for the sea with the seashore. I have summered by the ocean, even lived by the ocean, and its ever-changing nature still beckons me.
I think that’s because, for me, the ocean is a metaphor of God. It is infinite, boundless, gentle, and frighteningly powerful—all at the same time.
With each wave it shifts sandbars, tumbles rocks, and reshapes the land. It washes away and deposits anew. Shells, driftwood, —treasures lost become treasures found.
The rhythm of the waves echo the prayers of my heart. And as I walk along the shore, no matter the weather or the season, I can always hear His voice.
Jayne E. Self lives in Ontario, Canada. Her mysteries, Murder in Hum (2011) and Death of a Highland Heavyweight (2012) have both won Word Awards—Canada’s largest Christian writing awards.
