September 7


While I was working today, it seemed that every visitor that came in was talking about how windy it was outside. When I left work, the DJ on the radio said the waves on Lake Michigan were 10-12 feet high.
So - when I came home, I picked up my husband and we made the 20 minute drive to Grand Haven. We weren't disappointed! It was hard to even walk to the beach, because of the wind, and when we got there, we were amazed to see the size of the waves.
If you look at the picture closely, you will see someone surfing right below the inner light. There were several people out there, but that's not water I would want to be in!
This reminds me of how powerful God is - this lake is small in his view - huge in mine and He controls the wind and the waves!
