Went down to Capistrano Beach last night, right at sunset. Capo Beach, as the locals call it, is located on the south end of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point. It still has some of the last fire rings in the county which makes it quite unique. You can also walk your dog, on the road mind you not on the sand, along the beach. It has a small town feel, a little burg sort of place smack dab in the middle of SoCal. It also has the original Olemendi’s. No better Mexican food in the county.
The whole of this place is not too much more than maybe a mile long, possibly a bit longer but not by much. On the east side of Coast Highway are the places to stay; motels, higher end sort of places and some timeshares.
I was on a third floor timeshare that my boyfriend’s sister and niece and grandniece were staying, inivited to dinner at the beach. Leaning out of the balcony watching the sunset over Doheny Beach I snapped a picture on my tiny little cell phone. The beauty of the Great Universe’s Artist was as usual unsurpassed by anything mere man could come up with.
So I decided that my Facebook friends should see it too. I can post things on Facebook from my phone, it is a skill that took some fine tuning, so I put it out to the universe through FB. I always to be sure it actually did go where I wanted the picture to go, as I am not so very techie in my attempts at some of the electronic things nowadays. Voila! It was there. I felt very, very modern, withit and a tinies bit tech-minded.
Until I opened Facebook this morning, checked my notifications and saw the caption I put on my great picture. It said “Sinset at Capo Beach”. Which started my thoughts winging their way out into the universe I sent the photo too.
Sin-set. Great play on words, great ideas that come with that. Sin setting is a task only God can accomplish. Setting sin away from us all. The picture has a shaft of sunlight blazing out of clouds to a precise point on the earth, slighty out of reach of the viewer. Precise setting sin away, directed light, piercing the darkness of sin; light that completely destroys and obliterates sin. Gone for good. Not even a shadow of it remains.
Now, if I could figure out how to post the picture on this blog, you could all see it too. The majesty of God’s great work, the simplicity of the moment at the beach last night and the promise of sin removed from us in that quickly snapped picture on that tiny cell phone. A true Sin-Set!!
