|A Cottage by the Sea||
“Let the sea roar and all that fills it; the world and those who live in it,” says the psalmist and that’s the way it was when I arrived at the cottage yesterday afternoon. The wind wasn’t howling; just the sea, high tide waves rolling in, fog obliterating the homes across the bay. Somehow it felt comforting. I had no choice but to snuggle into my little cottage by the sea, snuggle and feel protected. Our world has been in an uproar since last Friday morning; a simplistic, idyllic scene would have felt dishonest. But our world has also been comforted, and even protected, by the outpouring of candles, flowers and teddy bears, and by the heartfelt prayers of our president, Christian clergy, Jewish rabbis, Islamic leaders, and from everyone who has shed a tear. As Annie once sang, “The sun will come out tomorrow.”
