Where I find peace...

There have been many times in my life where I have had to ponder on what direction my life should take, what I believe in, or come to terms with how things have transpired in my life. My favorite place to go and think is on the beach. There is something that is so peaceful about walking along a sandy shore, listening to the wind and waves. It is in those quiet moments that I am able to contemplate so many things and especially that of what my Heavenly Father would have me do. It is where I can turn to him for forgiveness, support for the path that I have been led too, and just to feel his love and the peace that only He can bring.

 I don't always get to go to the beach as often as I like, so I am trying to make it a point to find quiet moments in my home where I can ponder where my life is and where it is going. As I am writing this post I had an ahhh-haaa moment. My home is painted in different shades of blues, white, and grays. These are all colors that I find at the beach, my peaceful and happy colors. The colors that let me be able to have a sanctuary in my home.

I often find that I need to have those moments of contemplation in order to deal with the stresses in my life and to reconnect with my Father in Heaven. This past week, I have seen how important it is to have those moments, those experiences, to reconfirm my faith in my  Savior and in Heavenly Father's plan for us.  I never thought of those moments as having an Enoch experience, but that is what those walks on the beach, and those periods of contemplation at home have been for me. I am grateful that I have the scriptures to learn from. It is always a comforting feeling to know that you aren't alone and aren't the only one who has had struggles throughout one's life. We see over and over just how much He loves us and all that He did for us so we can return to live with Him one day.
