Jump! Cleawater Marine Aquarium
We love watching the dolphin shows at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. I let kids stand in front of me, as any considerate adult should. :)
But because of my height, I don't always get clear pictures.
With each command this dolphin jumped higher and higher, and I was ready with my camera. The trainer built up the crowd for this final big jump. The crowd was into the performance and....
Yep, I got a picture all right. The girl in front of me was so excited, that she helped the dolphin with the hand signals just like the trainer. So my picture wasn't great, but you can still see how high he jumped. I couldn't get mad that she blocked my view, because she was just excited.
"You realize, don't you, that you are the temple of God, and God himself is present in you?" 1 Corinthians 3:16 (MS)
Lord, how often have I blocked others view of You with my actions or words? May You always jump higher than my mistakes so others can see You.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
