Heaven on Earth

Sunset by the Beach
Sunset by the Beach at Point Lookout, Maryland

Nature’s wonders never ceases to amaze me.
The view is picturesque
more like a postcard
surreal but breathtakingly beautiful.

I stare at the wonder
of God’s handiwork
and am thankful
for being alive.

In the morning
after a night in the tent
I awaken
to the sounds of different birds
chirping,
calling,
beckoning,
to come and see
the promise of another day.

I wake up
and see
children playing outside
free from the cares of the world
not worrying
about whether a car will whizz by
or a stranger snatching them
as they play freely.

Fishing by the pier
I hear the water lapping
splashing against the rocks
as the silence
is interrupted
by the sound of a happy fisherman –
my husband.

This
right here
is heaven.
