As I walk along the beach
I see the flying seagulls gliding high
They are so graceful
With beaks wide for catching fish, down they dive
I feel the sand between my toes
My wet bathing suit will soon be dry.
I can see forever, the sky, the clouds, the sea
I smile when a seagull comes close to me
Their eyes are keen and sharp,
So for miles they can see.
I love the smell of the ocean,
A gentle breeze takes little waves away from shore
I wish I could stay here forever,
Come back for more and more.
I can see the sunset as I stop and look
It seems to go into the ocean as it fades from sight,
I love to watch the beauty
All of nature made for my delight,
It is a gift from Heaven
And when the pure white seagull I can see, flying free
It is God's love for you and me.

The people's poet
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is Godís will for you
in Christ Jesus.
