They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:23-31

I live in a small fishing community where most of the residents make their living off the water in one way or another. This is a familiar passage of scripture with the people in my area. I am posting it in honor of Father's Day. Although my dad's main occupation was construction, there was a time he made his living off the sea and was happiest there. He departed this world for Glory Land ten years ago and I miss him dearly. There are so many things I want to tell him that have happened since he's been gone. However, I know his stories since he's been gone would be FAR more interesting than mine.

My husband is a fisherman and is so happy and content when he is on the water. He can testify that the "works of the Lord" are evident in a mighty way and "his wonders in the deep" are beyond comprehension.
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
I hope you've enjoyed this post and the images I'm sharing with you today. I've posted the Father's postcard before, but thought it appropriate to bring it out again.
