I keep hearing people around me use the word serene. An interesting thing to notice, I know. Anyway, it is a good word and one that appeals to my senses.
When you think of serene, what comes to mind? Or the feeling of serenity?

A quick google image search of ‘serene’ shows many people think of the same images. Sunsets. Sunrises. Quiet landscapes. Bodies of water. Rays of light. Colors.
All in the great out of doors. Do you think I am surprised by this? No, no I am not.
Here is what serenity looks like to me.
A quiet and soft eye, that peers deep into your soul.
Awe inspiring and relaxing landscapes.
A ‘frosty’ morning ride on Cheetah, looking at the geldings.
Light and color.
The outdoors is like my church. The sky is the steeple and my horse’s back is my pew.
Everything I hear and see and feel was created and put there by Him and IS Him. AHAmoment.
I hope you feel serene now! What makes you feel serene?
Walk in love, dear readers!
