Easter morning in Cedar Key feels serene

-A A +A
By David Davis

Serenity surrounds me.

It is Easter Sunday in Cedar Key.

I gaze across the Gulf.

It is pre-dawn.

It is those minutes between the dark of night and sunrise.

The moments are precious.


Like life itself — finite.

The soul enters the body.

The soul leaves the body.

Everything beyond — eternal.

The sun rises in the East

On Easter morning in Cedar Key.

I gaze across the Gulf.

My eyes look on.

There is nothing to see except in my mind’s own eye.

A small fishing vessel.

Like life itself.

The boat leaves shore.

The boat returns.

Everything beyond — eternal.

The Bible is filled with references to water beginning with Gen. 1:2 (KJV), “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Before anything else, there was water. “Water” appears 396 in 363 verses in the Old Testament. According to U.S. Geological Survey, about 60 percent of a person’s body is water.
