The simple life pleasures!
Saturday I took a ride down to the beach.
Standing there listening to the waves crashing on the shore was relaxing. What wasn’t so relaxing was how crowded it was. So I basically enjoyed the sights and sounds for maybe 15 minutes, picked up a few shells, petted a sand crab, got my feet wet in the cold ocean then made my way on down the road.
Found a little coffee shop if it was on the beach that would so have been a dream, but it was close enough for the day. Sitting out in the beautiful sunshine taking in the beauty I was able see and enjoy. One thing would have made it better the more would be spending time talking to a good friend.
Journaling, praying, writing notes, and lesson plan prep for when I teach is what my time at the coffee shop consisted of for the time I was there.
Found Jockeys Ridge state park went dune climbing for a little while that was fun too sand in my toes, wind in my hair and for fall it sure was a hot day…LOL I believe it was close to 90s in temperature.
My Pastor has taught us that learning to quiet our soul is needful to hear the spirit of God in our life. I have found for me the beach, by sea, or any body of water I can get into that place to quiet my soul. I can sit there and cast cares, pray and quiet down my inner person of the soul. As I traveled home later that evening God did speak cause I had quieted down my soul for him to speak to me what He wants of me to do. Rest in Him and trust him! That’s the living and loving God I so greatfully and humbly serve.
