To go out to the water,
early in the morning,
to feel the water,
and survey the world swimming below,

putting enough care not to disturb the peace of the early morning calm,
before the sun rises in a full shine.
Nothing is heard but the pole slicing through the water,
and the frolicking of little fish upon the ocean weeds.

The little man dreaming to grow up like his father!
It’s not his time to go to the deep sea, but for now,
this is what he does to prepare for the bigger things that life is calling him to do.
No fish will be caught, no money will be earned, but this is his work, even then, for now.

Reflecting about work calls for a deep spirituality. It is beautiful that God has so fashioned our human existence in such a way that we too can be sharers of his creative work on earth, that through our intellect, our will and our individual skills, the world continues to transform itself, to evolve into the fullness of the divine plan for His creation.

The picture is taken from the shores of South China Sea, a short stroll away from our home, in Candon City, Northern Philippines.   This is my entry to Ailsa’s Travel Theme Challenge: Work
