An important part of my life, as necessary as water and air is the beauty I find in nature. Growing up in Indiana I had full run of my grandparents farm. I would daily retreat to the woods and just over the hill find peace at the rivers edge. The sounds of the water are so soothing. Ahh....peace. This is our land in Odessa. It too has a beautiful waters edge. I find myself enjoying the same retreating ritual. Psalms 23 He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul.
