Forty-eight hours before Topical Storm Isaac was predicted to make a pass over our area, people were frantically marking things off their Hurricane-Preparedness List. Gas for cars and generators. Propane tanks for gas grills. Ice. Food. Medicines. Batteries, especially size D, which were impossible to find.

Those of us who have spent our lives on the coast always try to act calm and confident as a storm approaches. But there is always a little anxiety, as no one really knows what a storm will do.

This time the storm passed by us and wreaked havoc on our neighbors to our west. Our hearts broke for them.

In the middle of our preparations we took a quick trip to the beach, and this is what we saw:

These little guys just doing what they do everyday.

And glorifying the Creator while they were doing it.

"Blessed are those who trust in the LORD 
and have made the LORD their hope and their confidence."  
Jeremiah 17:7


  1. Such a good reminder! We can prepare and watch and wait. But our lives, world, weather--they're all in God's hands. Thanks for sharing this today!

  2. Amazing how the animals seem to just know in whom to trust.

  3. Wow, that is amazing and a lesson for us all to 'be still' and trust and not panic.

  4. Oh, yes. When tornadoes or thunderstorms move through here [not enough this year with the drought being overwhelming], we prepare and we have our hearts turned towards the others who are next in line. Those do touch hearts as all of us, hurricane and otherwise, can damage so many people and their basic life necessities. [The fire storms this year have been very serious, also. So much on so many plates.]

    Love your photo -- the sky, the waves, and the "beach boys".
