That brings me to my question. For you, which one would be closer to your place of simplicity………the beach or the mountains?
I know for some it’s that cottage on the beach where you kick back and listen to the waves and walking the beach feeling the sand between your toes. Looking out as far as you can see and seeing the water gives some a sense of God's presence.

For others, there’s just something about the mountains that bring that peaceful feeling and sense of awe. Looking at the handiwork of God's Hand in carving the mountains seems to make them feel closer to God.

For me, it’s most definitely the mountains. And if it's a cabin in the mountains, all the better! I don’t have a thing against the beach and love to go every once in awhile, but the mountains are just beautiful to me. The ocean can make me feel a little lonely. I'm not sure why, but it sometimes does. However, looking out over the mountains just gives me a peaceful, calm, restful feeling and makes me feel the awesomeness of my God. I remember one vacation, we were sitting on the front porch of our cabin in the mountains during a thunderstorm and it was the most beautiful thing I think I’ve ever seen…..simply majestic! If I could just take my house and plant it in mountain country, I would be completely living my dream! And if there was a lake in that scenery or even a creek nearby, it would be heavenly! :)
So now it’s your turn…….I can’t wait to hear yours! Would you share your preference (beach or mountains) and why it's your favorite?
Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll have Pinned it Made it Monday ready for linking up sometime Sunday evening! I’d love for you to join me!
Have a great weekend!
