Miracle of the Day

What does this picture look like to you?...

If you guessed Peter's wedding ring
that was lost in Matanzas Inlet
during a game of water volleyball
you would be right!

Yes, that's correct,
the intracoastal;
lost for over two hours
in sand constantly being shifted
by the tides and the continuous stream
of waverunners and boats!

A diligent, but seemingly hopeless search
was done by all, particularly Jess,
who didn't give up and sent alot
of prayers heavenward.

Finally, it was time to call it a day,
the kayaks were packed for the
trip back to the car,
the dogs collected,
last pictures with the setting sun were taken
(more of all of this to come in the next post),
and Peter and Jess were at the water's edge
lamenting their loss.

When Jess glanced down one last time
 and then we heard..."There it is!"

We thought she was joking.
She wasn't!

The ring was literally at their feet!

And she was able to place the ring
on Peter's finger once again...

And they lived happily ever after!

Thank you, God, for miracles!
