One recent night I paid a visit to a lake in Western Massachusetts.
Arriving at dusk, I got out of the car and walked to the edge of the water.
The scene before me soothed my weary soul. The sky looked like a watercolor canvas. Muted colors brushed against the horizon.
Soon the sun, on its journey to the night, burst out from behind a cloud and reflected a million sparkling shards of light in the water of the lake.
It's times like this that make me want to cry for the incredulous thrill of being alive.
I stood at the shoreline of the lake, transfixed by the sight before me.
My heart filled with gratitude for the gifts God gives every single day of life and the extra special ones, like sunset on the lake.
Once the sun sunk down below the horizon, the sky turned completely pink, my favorite color.
The busyness and marathon aspects of the week melted completely away after seeing sunset on the lake.
DO YOU HAVE A LAKE WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE OF WHERE YOU LIVE?
IF NOT, WHERE DO YOU GO TO FIND SERENITY?
