Photos that prove living on the edge is worth it


Safety can sometimes prevent adventure.

My photos today were taken in a recent storm at Yorke peninsula. The sharp cliff edges are pounded relentlessly by the ocean waves reminding me of the fragility and yet enormous power of nature. 
Life on the edge can mean life or death.
Life on the edge can mean adventure or disaster
Safety or peril
Life on the edge is exempt from....
...boredom and routine...
...and all normality.
Life on edge is for risk takers.
For those who like to be jostled about.
However, life on the edge can mean a fall to the treacherous waters below if you miss your footing.
You WILL fall once in a while and it will be a rough journey to the bottom.
Certain injury....cuts, bruises, and tears are a not negotiable result.
In fact consider yourself lucky you did not get swept away completely.
Consequently sound and accurate navigation skills to get you up again are a top requirement.
Be prepared for some steep cliff climbing and whatever you do don't look down!
You may hurt and you may feel like giving up.
But no cliff dweller exists that ever gave up. (A sea eagle)
A tenacious passion for life will keep you trekking higher and higher.
Through every kind of terrain.
But once you reach the top again.
The things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

 When you feel the call and have a desire to live the life above.....leaving the old and familiar behind is never easy, but I am comforted to know..

I forget the past and strain toward what is ahead. I keep trying to reach the goal and get the prize for which God called me through Christ, to the life above. Phil 3.13.
