This is my new favorite place to be,
a beautiful retreat that soothes my soul and fills me with awe of God's artistic perfection.
It's a little over 3 miles around the lake,
and the views and terrain change.
From a paved path to gravel,
the stretch of mountains to a farm and grazing cows.
Even a little waterfall and stream!
There are inviting places to sit awhile as well as spots for a picnic,
playgrounds nestled in among exquisite homes,
but the part that speaks most to me
is the stretch of wilderness.
It's quiet there.
And my heart is at peace.
