Last week I was tired and felt a little like Heidi…
(she missed the mountains and the great outdoors!)
My husband & I drove to the nearest beach
and took a walk…
It might seem like it’s night time in this photo,
but actually, it’s early morning on the beach.
The skies were cloudy,
so even though the sun had technically risen,
it wasn’t as sunny as a “normal” sunrise.
All I had was my cell phone,
but I wanted to take some pictures.
The little birds were just waking up, it seemed.
If you click on this photo above, and zoom in,
you can see a line of birds flying just above the water.
The sound of the waves, the water between our toes,
This is what I needed.
Ever so slowly, it began to get a little brighter…
“You rule the swelling of the sea.” Psalms 89:9
We walked for a mile and a half.
In some places, close to hotels,
the workers had begun to set up
umbrellas & chairs for rentals.
In a few hours, this place would be
crowded with lots & lots of people.
But for now, it was just a few, here & there,
walking, some jogging, some riding their bicycles.
By the time we had turned around and returned to where we had started,
it was much brighter.
And so it was for me.
Take time to go outside and enjoy it.
Have a terrific weekend,
