Thursday Doors: Sea the Truth

ThursdayDoors DSFStanding on the beach at twilight, watching the surf rolling onto the sand, wave after wave, one right after the next. Trying to make the best of a bad situation, but not everyone goes with the ebb and the flow.

I walked back alone along the two and half blocks we had walked together to the sea. My car service was needed. She couldn’t walk that far again — the wind was too strong, the chill in the air too biting. A million excuses except the one that is truth.

Along the way, I saw this church, a place of solace for many. For me — a place that sharpened my skills of detecting falsehoods, hypocrisy, the show over substance. A place where, to me, inner truth is not respected.

But, man, they sure do know how to make the outside look good.

This is my church, best enjoyed alone.

Serenity.

  1. My epistle: the stained glass window above the doors is pretty. You snapped a good pic of it. I like serenity, too. Your photo of it calls to me. Nothing like crashing waves to set your soul at ease.

  2. With the right accompanying music the first paragraph of this post reads like it could be a Beach Boys song…something about wrapping up a summer romance, I think 😉
    Yeah I feel the same way as you about places of worship. When the need arises I find that nature does a much better job of realigning my psyche and my spirits.

  3. Mmm, beach ❤ Nothing better than the rush of surf for easy breathing and peace in the soul.
    The skies in these shots are great — the sky almost as pretty as the stained glass in the one. Lovely stuff.
