Ways to Relax #5 – Nature

Ways to Relax

Nature is…




and provides the perfect atmosphere to



    and contemplate ways to simplify life.

The still, glass-like surface of the lake beckons to the abundance of pebbles and rocks found at the water’s rim.

The activity is simple.

    No rules

    No time limit

    No counting

Just a very easy, mindless action

that can free the soul of all chaos, worries

and helps to restore perspective.

That is why the fifth way to relax is skipping rocks across the lake.

Thank you for the moments of relaxation. I hope you are taking advantage of those moments as well.

But my real purpose for coming by was to see how you are doing? How is your daughter? I pray for her everyday and hope she is progressing to wellness.
I will continue to pray for you and your family.

Such beautiful photos. When I was younger I would always try to skip rocks and I never could they would just plop into the water. Maybe I should go on a picnic with my family and give it another shot.

Beuatiful pictures and truly relaxing!
However, I have to admit that I never got the stones to skip, no matter how often my dad and brother showed me how to do it. 🙁
But for me, sitting at a lake- or oceanside is amazing and relaxing enough even without skipping stones, so that's okay, really. 🙂
