Now the day is over

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds, and beasts, and flowers,
Soon will be asleep.

Grant to little children
Vision bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep blue sea.

 Through the long night watches
May Thine angels spread
Their white wings above me
Watching round my bed.

When the morning wakens
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.

Nothing quite like a summer sunset paddle

Ahh those summer evenings! Intracoastal salt water…warm as bathwater transforms itself into a spa. Stress melts as the sunset leaves hues of purple, pink, orange and gold painted across the sky. One of my favorite places this time of day is Coral Cove. The water is crystal clear and even as the sun sets you can catch glimpses of the underwater wildlife, not to mention the shoreline feather creatures strolling for their supper. The boats for the most part have returned home so you feel as though you own the waterway. Sharing happy thoughts with friends or just meditating on the blessings our awesome God has given to us to enjoy brings soul satisfaction. With each stroke of the paddle the delight of gliding across the water creates a sense of accomplishment as we tone and build muscles in our core. When we lay our head on the pillow that night, rest is assured…why go to an artificial spa when you can visit the Creator's real life version!
