Sitting on the beach. Taking in the salt air, the sand between my toes, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.
For me, this is serenity. My whole being feels at peace here (maybe it's because I'm alone while the kiddos are still in school :-) I think its a little of both).
I'm doing one of my favorite activities- reading. I actually just finished my book and I am looking out at the ocean remembering all the good times at the beach when I was younger.
I am feeling very thankful today.
Being thankful for how God can make something beautiful out of something horrible. Loss deepens who we are; it brings us to places we never knew existed. It strengthens us in our weakest season of life.
I've learned that if we let him; God will wrap his arms around us and never let us go especially in our ugliest most needful moments.
I don't always understand the journey but I am trying to trust it. Life is hard, but it is also full of hope. We aren't promised a life with no disappointments or heartaches; but we are promised hope.
My favorite place to be when I need to feel calm and balanced is the beach. I love everything about this spot...I hope I can come here more often.
Have a great day y'all.
