I've been reading and rereading Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest by Bonnie Gray of Faith Barista. I have my daily quiet time. I look forward to waking up, sipping that first cup of coffee and being in the Word. My spirit and soul need this.
But I've been longing to hear the sound of the ocean waves and smell the salt air. I listen to the sound on my computer but it's just not the same as the real thing.
And then I received the invitation. My friend Terri wanted to send me a plane ticket to Carmel, California. It's one of my favorite places to visit. She and her husband rented a house on Pebble Beach for the summer. She spoke of long walks on the beach, dinners in Carmel and Pacific Grove, time to write, time to simply be.
Thank you Lord!
So off I went for a long weekend in September.

I return to Phoenix and daily life. But I know that each day I can find that soul rest in God alone.
Where do you go to find rest for your soul?
I'm linking up with Bonnie of Faith Barista for Whitespace Thursday.
Blessings and love,
