This is Ship Harbor in Acadia NP, near Bass Harbor Head Light Station. Even though I assume this was near low tide, it is hard for me to imagine large ships coming through here. And yet, that is supposedly how this body of water got its name. You can tell how high the water gets during high tide by the dark color of the rock.
We talk about the rising tide as a metaphor, as in “a rising tide lifts all boats”. This phrase has been used primarily in an economic sense, meaning everyone benefits when the economy improves. But it could just as well be thought of in a spiritual sense as well. As in, we all benefit from God’s love.
