In 1999, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse had to be moved from its original location at the edge of the ocean to safer ground 2,900 feet (880 m) inland, and 1,500 feet (460 m) from the shoreline. Due to erosion of the shore, the lighthouse was just 15 feet (4.6 m) from the ocean's edge and was in imminent danger.
Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was begun in 1868 and finished in 1870, and is the tallest brick lighthouse in the USA.
This is a common verse to help us remember that this is not our home. We store up treasures in heaven not on earth. Steven Curtis Chapman has a great song called, We Are Not Home Yet.
Sorry, no lyrics with this but you'll enjoy it just the same.
Blessing of the Day: Time on the porch listening to the waves. Storms are brewing this morning. Glad I got out there early this morning. This is our last day here. Early tomorrow morning we'll be on our way back home.
