Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him…

Psalm 37:7


The star fish lives in Bintan, Indonesia. We took a ferry from Singapore to this Indonesian island for a few days of time apart with God. Stayed in a cabin that looked like a beachcomber’s shack right on the beachfront, complete with cracks in the walls and roof. The tide was way out this morning and my husband and I walked nearly a quarter of a mile in the water. We photographed this perfectly formed starfish as it shimmered through the shallow water while we walked.
