On the fourth day of Creation, God said, "Let the waters teem with living creatures and let birds fly above the earth ..." (Genesis 1:20-22, New International Version). He blessed them saying, "Be fruitful, multiply and fill the seas and let the birds multiply ... and so it was ..." Our sea brims with life this morning, laden with mullet, blue crabs, and more; overhead fly scores of shorebirds. God saw that his handiwork was good. And so it is. May the people now travelling along the beach road notice the wondrous quality of this new day.
