In this space, I will occasionally post stories of faith, inspiration, running, art and of love. I ask you to join me on this journey exploring human nature, our faith walk and our love of things sacred and kind.
I hope that everyone is enjoying their summer and finding something wonderful to do away from work. Finding that special thing that gives you joy can change the way you see the world. For me, it is when I am painting, tilling in the garden or going for a long leisurely walk along the Ericeira coast. While I am not always a fan of cold ocean water, I love to feel my feet under the moist, compact sand; I enjoy the feel of the sun on my face and the moist air filling my nostrils. I feel a sense of peace at the beach. I feel calm and I see the love of God in what he has created for us to enjoy. But you don’t have to go to the beach to see any of feel this — it can be found in a walk around your neighborhood, planting a flower in the front yard or sipping your morning coffee on the porch as the sun rises or sets. There are so many ways to connect with nature and God.
I hope that everyone has a marvelous week. Happy July 4th and enjoy your summer.
Be blessed and know that you are loved by the Most High!
