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.
