Full-circle sittin’.

Waves splashed on large boulders today and sailboats breezed across the water.

Double-crested cormorants sat watch on the rocks.

The wind was playing in Connecticut and I had the familiar sense I’d been there before, though of course I hadn’t been.

“Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding has been stuck in my head this past week…

I’ve been singing it washing dishes, driving my car, dealing with clients, feeding the cat… you get the picture.

“So I’m just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
watchin’ the tide roll away
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
wasting time

Looks like nothin’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I’ll remain the same

Sitting here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
It’s 2,000 miles I’ve roamed
Just to make this dock my home now

I’m just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
watchin’ the tide roll away
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
wasting time”

Today I’m grateful for full-circle moments and gratitude. Full-circle moments in life bring opportunity and pleasure back, sealing clean a loop where it once was stolen… tiny mysterious knowings only the individual can discern. Moments like this are when God sends a breeze… a whisper… a reminder… “I see you, I know you and you are mine.”

I’m grateful to serve a God who sees His children, loves His children and gives His children what they need when they need it.

Psalm 139

1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.

 

Today was a beautiful, full-circle day. I’m thankful for it.
