Getting Back To Nature

The shopping malls are fine,
the coffee shops are fine,
the busy streets and
the crowds are fine.
But for me,
it's time to get back to nature.
Nature grounds me.
I feel a peace there like
no other place.
 
 
 
 
Mistletoe.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
My brother-in-law is
doing better, and me
and my sister
 want to thank you all
for your prayers.

  
I never expected to
meet so many amazing
women when I
started blogging 2
 years ago.
women of faith
women of courage
women of love.
I never expected to,
but I did.

The power of nature is much more than many other things in our life! I just game in after being out there even if it´s dark allready. I was with my daughter and our dog just walking in the fresh air wondering and talking. (I notice my english is not so good but I´ll try:)

I like your blog and it was nice to get you visited in my own.

It´s good to hear that your brother in law is getting better. I trust all our prayers get heard. We have God, who has good will and so much love for us all!

Be blessed♥

How sweet you are Sheri!
It warms my heart to know you enjoyed viewing her... I am offering her on Ebay with no name.
If she is lucky enough to find a home, I wanted to leave the name open.. I know some people enjoy giving a name.
Blessings to you, and thank you so much for visiting

Marcia Pilar said...

Nature is so soothing and peaceful to me too, my friend. I'm glad my husband insisted on driving to the Keys on Jan 1st. It was medicine to my soul and my body. I also find much peace in creativity, but nothing like nature and God's Word.
I am so glad we met via blogging, proof again that the best gifts are those we do not expect. ;)
Happy to hear Dan is doing better.

Shoppings também! Mas é bom descansar a mente.
