The beauty of the ocean is evident. The power of the ocean will also be evident as the storm approaches landfall later in the week.
I went to the beach for a little while last night to spend some time in quiet. While the number of tourists seems to have subsided a little, there were still plenty of people at the beach. I did not quite get the solitude I was seeking. One article I read recently said that summer now starts for the locals since Labor Day has passed. That appeared to be the case yesterday evening. Many people were out enjoying the calm before the storm.
Today's Gospel draws to a conclusion with a powerful statement made about Jesus. "He has done all things well." What does that mean for us today?
"Praise the Lord my soul."
