After a very busy summer (one that has not included a lot of blogging) I must admit my heart craved a long restful break in my beloved Blue Ridge Mountains. The lush green trees, cool moist air and mountain peaks in the distance always welcome me home. The silence overwhelms me, so much so that I can hear the rapid beats of my heart, each breath that I take and my footsteps on the grass. No need for yoga or meditation; no need for power naps in the afternoon or tea to calm my nerves. My eyes consume God's greatness and I feed my soul with all that He created.
