Just Being

It was low tide when I took my morning walk by the bay. As I rounded the bend, I looked down to find the little creatures that cause me to smile every year. Fiddler crabs. The first time I noticed them, many years ago, it looked as if the rich, brown, fertile sand was moving. When I stopped walking, the “sand” stopped. Looking more closely, I saw the camouflaged sea creatures, most carrying one huge white claw. The claws were waving this morning. Were they practicing morning stretches? Were they conducting the birds or waving good morning to me? Were they just being?

So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And God saw that it was good. – Genesis 1:21
