The warmth of a sunset, the stillness of a deserted beach. I have many memories of a scene like this from my childhood. Walking on the beach, watching the sun sink into the water and the first stars come out twinkling. Walking and thinking, turning over thoughts in my mind, feelings silently coming and going. In the end the open sky, the endless stretch of beach and the power of the sea cleansed my mind and soul and restored peace inside. Cares and fears could be emptied into the ocean and carried far away. God through nature has a way of healing and restoring us.
