H.O.W. Come Sit By Me A While : Sea Spray And Footprints.
Now then my friends; put your coats on as we are going for a visit to the beach!!!
Right has everyone finished their hot drinks and biscuits???Silly question isn't it !!!Ha ha ha!!
I'm glad I brought the biscuits out before our walk or you would probably have wolfed the whole lot if it had been on our return!!!
I grew up in a sea-side town in West Wales but spent most of my childhood exploring the countryside .
However I also have great memories of the beach too ; and this has stayed with me until today.
I love walking along the beach whatever the season;it certainly blows away those cobwebs of life and I walk home totally rejuvenated and also adorned with fresh and wondrous inspiration.Yesterday was such a day and began with me feeling a little stressed ; no reason why just one of those things!!!So wearing my coat and jeans I headed for the beach and remembering back to my childhood when I used to walk my Beagle Lassie on the beach all those years ago.
So best foot forward and all that. I shall take you on a trip; a trip which will be even more beautiful as Leona sing 'Footseps In The Sand.'
I do hope you enjoy!!!
Oh how refreshing
Seeping into each heart
A sense of bare-footed freedom
That great story of footsteps in the sand
Hearts full of natural beauty
So tenderly treasured
Yes come running through
The winter wind's blowing
And the waves a-crashing
The flag on the beach
The sunshine now setting
And the sky is darkening
I bade thee goodnight
Life's tide now so soothing
Protective and flowing
Each beauty now shines
That new beginning.
Ebbing and flowing
I dance with the sea's tempo
A sense of sweet belonging
giving my thoughts to thee
on the crest of life's wondrous tide.
the ocean's strong call.
Each wave enveloped each gift
a gift from
the unconditional heart
Cleansing and renewing
the once mottled beauty.
Each heart and soul unite
in sweet surrender;
in a great momentous adventure;
riding so freely
riding so high
a corner of the world
so rightly ours;
that well-fitting glove!
of our whole being.........
as we contemplate
finding our world;
finding our niche.
Weary hearts to be consoled
a tired spirits to be rejuvenated.
The ocean's magical potion
conjures up a wondrous
princess of love;
moves on into flowing mode.
So full of that loving potion
as she rides so high
on the crest f a wave.
A sense of sweet belonging
sending each love to the heavens.
Allow the ocean's
to fill our whole being;
our eager hearts;
our unconditional love
each willing and eager heart.
so wondrous !
Take a hand
and follow the footsteps
of the one who lives
as a whole being
as a true person.
So that you may also
fly on the crest
of that wave
I hope you all enjoyed our visit to the beach this morning; I attach this hub to Bill's brilliant cause H.O.W. because it is so important to learn how to deal with the stresses in our lives.
Maybe many more of you could also share what makes you kick away those blues and make that sunshine brighter than ever.
For me it is sometimes to take a walk around the village where I live and of course with my new camera in hand.
I also love the beach and to walk across sandy dunes.This is as magical for me in winter as it is in the summer months.
I feel the stress floating away and it also makes wonderful memories from my childhood to come flooding back. Those wonderful memories are of me and my best friend Lassie running across the sand with me in my shorts and always bear footed.
Here's a very big thank you to a beautiful lady with an equally beautiful voice;Leona Lewis .
Three cheers for Leona:-
Hip hip !!!!!
Hip hip !!!
Hip hip !!!
Lots of love from my little corner of Wales to you all.
Have a great day and see you again very soon.
