Rest a while and soak in the beauty of Creation

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time." ~ J. Lubbock

Michael & I went out west on his day off this week to Lake Wivenhoe. It was such a beautiful day and worth the drive - relaxing on the grass, soaking in and capturing the beauty surrounding us. It was peaceful, therapeutic, perfect...










"When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator." ~ Mahatma Ghandi
