Beach sunrise

If you missed your vacation this year because you can’t travel, come with me to the beach! I created a 3-minute meditation on Psalm 8 using ocean sunrise video from a previous trip to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Can you smell the salty breeze?

Love always,

    Oh my, I am so grateful for the sight and sounds of the ocean. Thank you, Rose.
    Your video is my idea of heaven.
    I, too, have had to postpone a pilgrimage to the seashore.

    “You have given him rule over the work of your hands.”
    Let us strive to be good stewards of this glorious gift from God.

    Simply beautiful, moving, and inspiring! I can’t help but think this is the reason I truly enjoy going to the beach, kayaking, hiking, etc., as it makes me appreciate what an awesome and majestic God, creator of all things we have!

    True purity in the sights and sounds of the rising sun as well as the waves crashing onto the beach. It has such a great rhythm to it. Here in Florida I get the added benefit of the watching pelicans diving for their catch and wonderful sounds of so many types of seabirds.

    Just the ticket for my mother and her friends in assisted living who have been confined to their rooms for 5 months.
    God bless you and all who view.

    Missing a trip to Ocean City with my sister. Shared your beautiful video with her. Hoping that it speaks the Lord’s beautiful words to her heart too. Thank you, Rose, my sister in Christ.

    This is so delightful. I particularly enjoyed hearing the sound of gentle waves meeting the shore at the magnificent beginning of a new day.

    This is the day the Lord has made!
    Let us rejoice and be glad!

    Thank you! I grew up in DE & made mY trips to Rehobeth Beach & Ocean City…but never @ sunrise. Psalm 8 is one of my favorite Psalms. What a beautiful combination of the relaxing sounds of the waves gently licking the shoreline as the morning awakens. Combined with such a beautiful psalm.
    Thank you!

    The right waves at the right time! Not dead still and not violent, the sound of these waves washed over me and then, pausing long enough for me to absorb their message of peace and tranquility, washed over me again. Even the the wind buffeting the microphone, a sound which might drive a remote broadcast news technician frantic, added a peaceful three dimensional presence; I could feel it wafting over my skin.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Just hesring the waves of the watet allow me to meditate as if I were in Ocean City.To look at God creation of this universe is awesome.
    Beautiful ! Rose

    Dear Rose,

    Just so beautiful and serene. Thank you so much.

    Reminds me of Gerard Manley Hopkins’s poem: “God’s Grandeur,” wherein he begins: “The world is charged with the grandeur of God.”

    Loved those waves on the shore.

    Thank you for the sights and sounds and the psalm! I could almost smell the salt in the breeze and feel the water drain from beneath my toes. Peace!

    Really beautiful! Thank you Rose for a 3 minute vacation. Glory to God in the highest!

    Immediately made me think of the Hymn “How Great Thou Art”. Thank you Rose for your inspiring and soothing message.

    Thank you, Rose. I live in West Michigan (not the sunrise side of the state!), and this reminds me of the sunset on Lake Michigan. It’s so beautiful and mesmerizing. Such peace.
