I used to live by the ocean. . . it certainly was special. . .

But now, the opposite way is where I am headed.   Cheesy

It's a beautiful though isn't it, all the virtues linked together in harmony?

I got to sit down by the shore yesterday while waiting for the doctor's office to open up, I just closed my eyes and listened to the waves most of the time, though it was quite pleasant to look out over the ocean.

Everything is quite ragged of course still the storm's effects are visible everywhere!

Yes! Virtues are like plants in a garden - it is impossible to have a healthy garden if you are only growing one kind of plant. Your plants will quickly become infested with pests and blighted with disease. But if you are careful with your planting and are sure to include several varieties of complimentary flora, your garden will thrive, and bear much fruit.

Oh, there almost nothing more soothing than sitting by the ocean! I've never lived by the ocean, but I've always loved to visit the shore. I used to collect buckets of shells to take home when I was a child. But the sound of the waves have always been my favorite part of visiting the beach...that and the seagulls!

Did you just endure a storm where you are? I hope that there isn't too much damage!

I'm living in New Jersey, about 35 minutes from the shore, I used to live right on it. So we still have the destroyed coast lines from the hurricane, and in fact, you can see destroyed buildings too, piles of broken wood and material.

There's nothing like the ocean. I will have to find a lake to visit at least when I move further away.

The healthy garden analogy is really a nice one for thinking on, a good one for meditation.  Grin Have you ever read St. Francis de Sale's 'Mystical Flora'? It's a book of extracts from his other works, all having to do with plants and the spiritual life.

"O unfathomable depth!
O Deity eternal! O deep ocean!
What more could You give me than to give me Yourself?
 You are an ever-burning Fire;
You consume and are not consumed.
 By Your fire, You consume every trace of self-love in the soul.
You are a Fire which drives away all coldness and illumines minds with its light,
and with this light You have made known Your truth.
Truly this light is a sea which feeds the soul until it is all immersed in You,
 O peaceful Sea, eternal Trinity!
 The water of this sea is never turbid;
 it never causes fear, but gives knowledge of the truth.
This water is transparent and discloses hidden things;
and a living faith gives such abundance of light that the soul almost attains to certitude in what it believes."

'See; God forbids us that action, that criminal pleasure, that revenge, that injustice; no matter, we are bent upon satisfying ourselves; we had rather renounce the happiness of heaven, than deprive ourselves of a moment's pleasure, or give up a sinful habit, or change our life. What are we, then, that we dare thus to resist God? Dust and ashes, which He could annihilate with a single look.

By sin, my children, we despise the good God. We renew His Death and Passion; we do as much evil as all the Jews together did, in fastening Him to the Cross. Therefore, my children, if we were to ask those who work without necessity on Sunday: "What are you doing there" and they were to answer truly, they would say, "We are crucifying the good God." Ask the idle, the gluttonous, the immodest, what they do every day. If they answer you according to what they are really doing, they will say, "We are crucifying the good God."'
