Funnel Cakes on the Beach

This is Day 6 of “31 Days of Whimsical Encounters” – part of the #write31days challenge. To read all the posts in order, please visit the overview page.


We were sitting on the beach. Jesus and me. We sat there in silence for a long time. Sitting on the sand, eating funnel cakes. For reals. Just watching the waves in silence. For a long time. Finally we got up and began to walk down the beach. Some of my favorite times with the Lord are on this beach. We walked for a while and came across a raft on the beach. Well, it was a surprise to me but He knew it was there all along. We got on and began to float out to sea. The sun was setting on the horizon. Beautiful. Suddenly, I realized we had a picnic basket between us. Jesus opened it and handed me something to drink. I ask Him, “Why is there always food when we are together?” His answer melts me because He knows me so well, “I just know how much you enjoy food.” It’s so true. He knows me.
