Washing Away The Worries

06192016_RainsDuring the past few weeks, I’ve been struggling with several significant personal questions, such as whether to reconsider my RV summer travel plans, how to best assist a couple of animal welfare groups that are important to me, and to figure out why I was feeling so uninspired creatively.

After chatting with close family members and “inner circle” friends who I’m confident have my best interest at heart (as I do them), I discovered answers to most of my concerns, as well as a sense of relief that lifted my spirits!

Then, almost like a gesture of celebration, a large lone rain cloud formed overhead that same afternoon, which released a gentle but steady rain shower that lasted at least 30 minutes. As I laughed and lifted my arms to greet the cool raindrops pitter-pattering on my face, it was like they were washing away the last of my worries, and filling me with a sense of peace, purpose and gratitude.

Throwback Thursday

Big Thicket National Forest (near Livingston, Texas)
March 2015

Upon my return to Deep East Texas in the early Spring of 2015, I enjoyed exploring the Big Thicket National Forest during a weekly ritual I call my “Sunday Morning Gratitude.”

This focused quiet time allows me to reflect on my blessings, express thanks for the special people in my life, and stand in humble awe of God’s majestic creation.

One morning, I took a back road and ended up at this place. It was so breathtaking and grand, yet incredibly still and silent.

A perfect setting for reflection and giving thanks for abundant blessings.

Hope you have a blessed day today.

AmyO.
