It really has been such a strange, difficult week in so many ways. When I feel overwhelmed by emotion, busyness or stress, it helps to steal away alone and just breathe in some beauty. This afternoon I was able to do just that and it truly helped to clear my head.
When I first begin, my thoughts are shouting at me so loudly that I really can't see anything except the path before me.
But after a time of walking, prayer and reflection, I start to notice little hidden beauties.
Some could go unnoticed if I wasn't observant.
The longer I walk and pray, the more my thoughts begin to slow so I can hear what the Lord is trying to say to me. I can hear His voice as He speaks to me. I begin to get clarity and a feeling of peace comes over me.
I'm so glad that I have a place to go that allows me to connect with the Lord as I take in the beauty of my surroundings.
