Another kind of life

Tuesdays. Not my favorite. For the most part.

My favorite part of Tuesdays - the beach. I didn't get there early enough to go before clinical today. So I went on the beach walk with all the clients from the crisis house. Today we saw a couple treasures.

I saw two dolphins swimming in the ocean!

One next to the other. In sync with each other. Riding the waves. I forgot the camera, but it was kinda like this.

The clients and I all pointed and watched together. It was a sort of bonding moment.

I like dolphins. I like that God thought to create dolphins. They live in the water, but breathe the same air we do. They have kids just like we do. They mate. They have families. And they make our waters beautiful. What must a dolphin day be like. "Today I think I will ride the waves." So simple. Thanks, Lord, for the dolphins and their simplicity. And for bringing them by at just the right time so I could see them.

"And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, & let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." So God created the great creatures of the sea & every living & moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, & every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them & said, "Be fruitful & increase in number & fill the water in the seas, & let the birds increase on the earth." And there was evening, & there was morning—the fifth day."
Genesis 1:20-23
