Monday Quotable

I love being outside (in warm weather) but I wouldn't consider myself a nature girl...or at least not until this year. I now find that I am most at peace when outside observing just how vast the world is. I'm not talking skyscrapers and mansions. I am talking about mountains, giant sand dunes, grassy meadows, the ocean, etc. Lately, it is easiest for me to meditate outside with the wind gently blowing through my hair and the birds chirping. That is where I feel most connected to the moment and to God. Are you happiest outside? If not, where's your peaceful place? Happy Monday!!

*I took today's photo at Jockey's Ridge State Park in the OBX. Last year, because of health problems, I could only make it to the base of the first dune. This year, I made it to the top of one of the tallest. At the top, I was so grateful for the improvements in my health and for the beauty all around me. This photo was taken on the way down in a less crowded area so the sand hadn't been trampled by everyone's feet. The wind made her own lovely wavy pattern and I had to snap a pic. Forgive the quality. All I had was my iPhone.
