restorative

This is going to be essentially a silent blog post other than what I’m typing right now because the photos are so beautiful….I want them to pull you in….I was outside for two hours this morning.  I walked over roads and woods and fields.  I took photos of every interesting sight I saw, the loveliness pulled me in and as I wandered along on my feet, and in my thoughts, I felt myself getting quieter and somehow, melancholy.

I came home, ate lunch, and this busy mama of seven took a three hour nap.

Restorative is the word that comes to mind.

*****
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want….He restoreth my soul….He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.

You have put gladness in my heart, more than their grain and new wine abound.  In peace I will both lay down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.

You are loved, my friends.

  1. Beautiful pictures! This post came at such a great time. I’ve been thinking how busy we are lately running around with work, school, and errands. Today I said it’s time to slow down as much as we can and recharge “Restore” is the perfect word!

  2. Beautiful! I often think of how all of the “rushing around” makes me miss the beauty that is right in front of me. The beauty all around you is quite lovely too. And a 3 hour nap??..that is quite lovely too!
