Sea. What kind of emotions does the sea or ocean make you feel?

William Whiting ‘s beautiful Hymn for those at sea:

Eternal Father, Strong to Save

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!
O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word,
Who walkedst on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!
Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!
O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe’er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea…

Sea. What kind of emotions does the sea or ocean make you feel? Do you remember the first time you went in the water? Had a wave crash on you? Felt the sand burn your feet? Do you feel more peaceful around water? Do you hate the beach? What’s the most interesting thing about the sea for you?

Lots of questions, lots of interpretations. Show me the different sides of Sea with your contribution!

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Your Favorite Thing or Things to Photograph

This week’s topic is Your Favorite Thing or Things to Photograph.

________________________________________________________________________

I am having an extremely busy time as a pastor at the moment. Friday is my day off, but today I have a funeral to lead, and next week is the start of our annual Church Fete…  So there is now 3 weeks of working 7 days a week, without one day to just ride my motorbike…

When you ask about favourite things, I should post a photo of my bike. But right now, living 500 miles (800km) from the nearest beach, I really, really long for some seawater on my skin…

So- out of my Sea collection this contribution this morning:

Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, South Africa

Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, South Africa

But hang on, I can do both… My Aprilia at the Southern point of Africa, one of these pops up on my header every now and then, this one shows the lighthouse of Cape Agulhas in the background…
