Do you enjoy walking along a beach ? It is a relaxing experience. Beaches everywhere, however, remind us that human carelessness has caused the oceans to fill with debris, as scientists tell us.
Once, after a storm, we found the beach littered with four empty Lamb’s Rum bottles, and hundreds of cigarette butts. Another time we found a stuffed little doggie wearing a Santa Claus hat. Our Golden Retriever enjoyed playing with that. It must have smelled amazing to her.
Our favourite find, so far, is a happy faced Hackysack ball. It has provided us with hours of enjoyment, as we practise throwing and catching the little soft cheerful ball in the kitchen , after our morning coffee. It is good to practise our hand-eye co-ordination !
It is raining today in rural Newfoundland. The weather whiners will be active today, for sure.
However, the cheerful Hackysack ball reminds us that this is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. And the little happy face reminds us that God is pleased when we all co-operate to protect the earth that He has created for us.
