These pictures are views of living actions... now silent in my pictures. Yet the water here is still rushing and noisy and I can hear the birds and the breeze is flowing over my brow. It was.... and still is a happy place in my mind.
Places that are refreshing to the mind and are sweet memories...
Solitude.... silence.... solace... helps to center the heart anew. It's hard to get still in the midst of choas and the actions of the modern world, yet we must if we are going to recenter, refresh and refocus our lives in wholeness. Happy hearts come from filled spirits.
“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.” Mother Teresa, 'In the Heart of the World: Thoughts, Stories and Prayers.
Where is your happy place and where do you go to restore your spirit? Nature is God's canopy of peace over us when we are alone with Him in quietness.
