Yes! December 29th at South Padre Island

This is late December in the Rio Grande Valley and on South Padre Island, folks!  The water was a wee bit chill, but since when will that stop a hardy Orthodox teen?  Besides lots of waves, water and sand castles, a fine game - the 1st ever of Internation Orthodox Beach Soccer was played this day on South Padre!  Next year, the re-match should be even better!  After our time on the beach, we drove down to the northern end of the island and climbed the dunes to watch the brilliant sunset.  Nice....

This is WINTER at its best! - 12/29/05

Strollin' On the Water
Bryan Duncan


During the fourth watch of the night,
Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
When the disciples saw him walking on the lake,
they were terrified. 'It is a ghost," they said,
and cried out in fear. But Jesus said to them,
"Take courage. It is I, don't be afraid,"
don't be afraid, don't be afraid...

Open up my eyes I pray
Lord for just a little glimpse of you
That's all I need
All I've ever needed
To see beyond myself,
beyond this tiny little world
At all your hands have made,
With beauty and strength alone
I can see you comin' to me now
Ah, like a shimmering light
A shimmering light on an open sea
Barefoot on the water,
laughin' at the ocean
Like you were old friends
And callin' out my name
sayin' join me now
Strollin' on the water...
high over every care
Strollin' on the water...
sinking no longer
Let me rise above the high tide
I can do it, I'll do it yeah,
I know where my strength comes from
Help me cut these bonds
where I keep my spirit tied down
All safe and dry...
safe and dry and so afraid
Let me come to you, let me run to you,
While my heart's still beating,
beating in my throat,
With my sweaty palms and a mouth so dry Shakin' till I can't stand still
All I'm askin', all I'm askin' is to
Let me cross that great divide
between you and I
Only you can take me there,
so take me there
Strollin' on the water...
high over every care
Strollin' on the water...
sinking no longer
Let me rise above the high tide
I can do it, I'll do it yeah,
I know that you said
Follow me...
just let the water flow...
let it go Oh, and keep your eyes on me
You feel alive?
Try turnin' circles...
bend your knees
And hold your hands up high
Can ya feel the wind in your hair...
with your eyes closed
Take a breath of fresh air...
feel the mist on your toes
(look where we are)

¡Gloria a Dios por todo!
