~ Psalm 33:6-9
God is the marvelous Creator of the universe. All the colors of the sunset spilling onto the sea; the tide bringing constant waves to shatter upon the shore; the dark storm and the moonlit calm--God's creation is so beautiful!
For the "Contentment Reading Challenge" I'm currently re-reading The Redemption, and I'm almost halfway through. It has been a pleasure to re-read this exciting, seafaring love story, as well as to re-read Tyndall's exquisite descriptions of the sea. I thought I would share a few of them with you:
- "The sparkling water was an artistic blend of turquoise and jade green. Its waves glittered in the sunlight like precious jewels before disappearing on the shore, dissipating into a million shimmering pieces of white crystal. Palm fronds danced gleefully in the wind, rejoicing in the magnificent view nature had given them." (p. 43)
- "The ocean was calm tonight. Merrick took in a deep breath of her salty scent, looking off into the distance where the waves glistened like liquid silver in the moonlight. Beyond, they faded into a darkness so intense it was as if the ocean fell from the face of the earth. No wonder people used to believe the world was flat." (p. 118)
- "She glanced over the exquisite scene. No land was in sight, just the vast, blue ocean, calm and deep, extending as far as she could see, its waves twinkling in the sunlight." (p. 62)
Note: As for the Contentment Reading Challenge, I'll plan on posting mini "reviews" of each book I re-read when I do the monthly updates, so stay tuned to hear more about The Redemption! Also, be looking for a special interview with this author, MaryLu Tyndall, for the Season of Love Blog Party.
