I recently stayed with my daughter and was able to take advantage of a nearby park with a path for walking, exercising, biking, and even horseback riding. Early in the morning the park was so quiet and still. The sun was just barely peeking and the breeze was still cool. There were other people there, of course, but we were all in a “world of our own” you might say. The silence was too good to interrupt. I had a lot on my mind so I used the time to think, journal, pray, and just be still.
By the time I left, the sun was up and the magic of those early morning moments were mine to take with me and enjoy all day. It wasn’t easy getting up extra early, but oh, so worth it!
