Such Adventures

Driving along the deserted beach road, our eyes were drawn by a massive flock of birds on the skyline.   We followed them and found a scene which, were it not for the truck, could have been taking place 2000 years ago.

Such excitement, such joy, such energy,

We were caught up in this primeval act of abundance.   A sardine run, nets, men, old, young, in between, working together to collect this bounty.

And He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. John 21:6

Their net was full; so full they could not lift it but had to lift the fish out in buckets.

And all the while we watched, enthralled, amazed, humbled why what we saw.

And all the while, the men would stop for a minute, clap and sing and offer praises to their Allah for the bounty.

My cup runneth over

Surely a day not to be forgotten in a hurry.
Remarkable, ancient, and offered to us becaus
e we wandered off with open minds and no agenda.

Annie, Mick, – thank you.
