my landscape is...

the mountains

actually, there are a few landscapes that i enjoy spending time in. but i guess i would have to say that the mountains would be my favorite.

there is something about being in the mountains that resonates with my soul. i'm just so at peace and i feel like it's where i belong. i feel closer to God. i feel closer to God just looking at the mountains from afar. i love living in colorado because i can always look to the west and see their majesty. someday, don and i would like to retire someplace in the mountains.

but i have probably spent more time on a beach than in the mountains. living in southern california as long as i did, the beach was the best place to spend your time. i learned how to body surf when i was in 3rd grade at huntington beach (big waves) and still love trying to ride the waves. i used to play beach volleyball. i would never be able to count up how many meals i've eaten on the sand. and a trip to the beach isn't complete without a walk out on a pier. yep, the beach is definitely a part of me.

hawaii is another landscape that i enjoy tremendously. it includes a beach but is more than just the beach. it's the mountains, the light rain showers, the rainbows, the sunsets, the boats, the people, and, of course, the underwater world where the fish, turtles, whales, and dolphins play. it's a tropical paradise and i love visiting as often as i can.

these are my favorites but i think there's beauty in almost anywhere you go. you just have to look for it and acknowledge that it's all God's wonderful creation.

The mountains are my absolute favorite too. Growing up in the Rocky Mountains and living for years beneath Sandia Peak in Albuquerque. No mountains in OK just hills!!!! :o(

I will never forget the first time I saw the mountains out west. It will forever be in my mind. It is God's handy work at it's best!

By the way, thanks for all your comments as of late. I so appreciate them all!
