Jesus Might, But The Sea Will

Heal you that is…

Graffiti on a stone wall by the sea in Fife’s East Neuk proclaims the possible healing powers of Christ.

As I have stated here before, I am no theologian, so cannot affirm the truth of the painted statement, or otherwise.

But I do know that the sea has magical healing effects.

Not just in the salt and minerals in the sea that assist with wounds (I once had cause to wash out a bleeding wound after been nastily bitten on the leg by a dog on a beach).

It is in the constant nature and rhythm of the ocean tides , the freshness of the salt air’s tang and the¬†might and power of the waves.

For it has been my comforter as long as I can remember, the magnetic thing that draws me to itself without effort.

No day is worse for gazing upon a marine expanse, no mood so forlorn that it is not uplifted.

There is no logical explanation, so in that I sense am in the same proverbial boat as the Christians!
