through the woods...

Yesterday had me content on the couch, in my pajamas, enjoying the Olympics. But I kept hearing a voice in my head saying win the weekend, it's not too late. With sleepy eyes, and not too much convincing in my voice, I suggested a walk to the swamp. I think it was met with the same unconvinced heart. But...
It was just what I needed, as it almost always is. The sky was overcast, holding off the heat, and as we made our way deeper into the swamp, we could feel the air cool just a little bit more. As we passed the trees with the red lichen, I took a few extra deep breaths, drinking that best air into my system.

It has been a tough weekend, with a traffic incident that has shaken me (everyone is okay) and wreaked havoc on my heart. Today it seemed just right to surround myself with God's beauty, a reminder that no matter what, He is everything... and has created everything I need.

I should have heeded that voice that told me to text you yesterday. I'm so sorry your heart is heavy. I pray you have peace and a good week!

The boardwalk looks a lot like the beach stairs, each leading to different beauty. Different, but the same. Beautiful.

Being in God's creation can be so healing - glad you are all okay from the accident. I know what a toll they can take emotionally...

Also glad to see you back documenting again : )
