We went on vacation, and my husband fell in love with another woman. Not just any woman . . . this woman, even I must admit, was mesmerizing with eyes that shone emerald along with cascading endless waves. Each night after we gorged ourselves on seafood, he snuck away simply for a glimpse of her and then to boldly stare and, finally, to collect her castoffs all while playing footsie with her. When he returned after each meeting with her, he was, in truth, simultaneously invigorated and exhausted from having been in her presence. His seven day rendezvous eventually had to come to an end, but gratefully, due to his newly found passion, I think we might just search her out again next year.
And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered
together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so.
-Genesis 1:9 ESV
