If you're any kind of "Sherlock Holmes", then you have deduced that my life is somewhat crazy-busy and over the top. And it usually is always (wait - does that sense? "Usually always"???? Oh well....) crazy busy - it never slows down.
Except for my mornings.
This is the view from my bed...in fact, I'm laying in bed as I took this photo...and that's "my" lake. Every morning, when I open my eyes, I'm treated to a delightful vision of Mother Nature in her finest.... The sun is just peeking out over the water; the birds are flying over the lake, swooping in to catch their morning breakfast; and the water....well, it just is. And it's beautiful just as it is.
This is when I just lie there - taking it all in....breathing deeply....relaxing...before the craziness begins. It keeps me going, knowing that tomorrow morning, I get to wake up all over again and take it all in. Again.
Do you have daily rituals that calm you? That keep you focused? Grounded? That make you just want to say, "Wow. God is good."?
