THE OCEAN DEEP
Quote for Today - September 22, 2012
"I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all discovered before me."
Sir Isaac Newton [1642-1727], from Brewster, Memoirs of Newton , Volume II, Chapter 27
I'm just back from a Transatlantic Crossing - 7 days on the Queen Mary II - from Southampton in England to Brooklyn, New York. This quote sums up so much. In my life, I've spent a lot of time finding pebbles and shells - but standing at a deck railing and looking at the ocean below - makes one think deep and deeper about the joy of finding God - the great Ocean of God - Water - Life - that swims around our globe. Without God - without water - I believe we would not be here - on this deck, on this beach, on this shore - or anywhere.
