The Sea

Funny story, hmm , where do I begin. My kids and I went on a trip to Florida with my parents to visit the Manetee springs. It was pretty awesome and we all had a great time. During the trip, we decided to find a beach area to swim at for a couple hours. I mean, how can you go to Florida without going to the beach. Plus, it had been atleast a year since any of us went. This particular beach we went to wasn’t like Panama city with the waves crashing on the shore. Actually, it was more like the lake. Just soft subtle waves here and there. The only difference was there were seagulls everywhere. It was very relaxing to not have to worry about the kids getting swept under by a big wave.

Through all the fun and excitement of the kids being tossed in the air and running back and forth splashing in the water, I happened to notice a fin out of the corner of my eye. I won’t lie, I panicked, screamed fin and was haul tailing it out of there. I saw in my mind a scene from jaws about to throw down and I wasn’t going to be apart of if!

To my surprise, it wasn’t at all what I thought it was, but only a dolphin. Not one, but a good bit of them. They were pushing fish to shore to eat. I thought I was going to have a hear attack. As my nerves settled down, we all got a pretty big laugh. I wasn’t the only one who panicked, but it was still embarrassing. Another visitor to that beach actually even walked by and made fun of me about it. But, afterwards we started calling every dolphin we saw a dolphin shark.

I believe every situation that GOD puts us through, we all come out of the other end with something to gain. Whether the situation is hurtful, painful, embarrassing, or happy. Some come out with a lesson, a story, a memory. With this particular situation, GOD gave me a song called The Sea.
