Enjoying January 2020 on Pismo Beach after letting Ruby run into the waves, the coolness of the saltwater gives me some relief of the cramps in my calves and my feet. It is beautiful with the sunset, and more so with my wife beside me. She is supportive, and she helped to lift me up several times after falling to my knees. I figure that it is God’s way of showing me that I have her strength as well as my own. I had to use the cane to help me rise, and the dog tried to assist by pulling me along; which reminds me that God will not only rise the tide but me as well while the sun goes down.
