Summertime. A warm beach, not Alaska or the United States. He is praising Gad because he is alive. He smells the ocean, the air, he smells life. He hears the water, waves and the ocean. He is feeling free! He thanks the Lord. Maybe he is waving to the plane. He is so happy…jumping into the air. I used to swim like that you know, everywhere in the river.
He is with God and the Angels. A lot of people go out by themselves. He’s been watching the boats, running, praising God and talking with friends. He heard the news his family was okay. Or he heard some happy news. Maybe he was drowning in the water and then thanked the Lord when he finally made it to shore. Oh Lord! He needs to sit and catch his breath. Then he can walk home, maybe call his family and let them know how happy he is to be alive.
