The Mountains and the Sea

The Northern beaches of Wollongong, about an hour south of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia are amongst my favorite places in the world. Not living too far from here, I am so grateful to be able appreciate this gorgeous treasure often. Between Thirroul and Austinmer Beaches there is a lovely “Secret Beach” that gets buried under high tide. It always feels a little bit out of this world to be there standing where the mountains literally tumble into the heart of the sea…

“If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me”
-Ben E.King

“God is my refuge and my strength
An ever present help in trouble
Therefore we will not fear though the earth give way
And the mountains fall into the heart of the sea…”
Psalm 46 verses 1 and 2
