this is what I seek…

by Betsy

King David writes in the Psalms, “this is what I seek…to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”

There are moments when I am walking on the beach, windblown and wet, a salty smell in the air, sand stuck to my fingertips and the roar of the ocean drowning every other sound out, when I realize I have come to a place of worship.

I stop and gaze upon the beauty before me.  The perfect grayness.  The damp wildness.  The gritty quiet.  A place so magnificent and unexplainable that surely it is a temple.

So I worship.

What else could you do in a moment like this?
