Through the Lens: Austrian Alps

One of the most beautiful places I have been to. Wow. This is one of those places that makes you feel small and empowered all at the same time. I can see why it’s a popular place to visit in the winter for skiing. I absolutely love it in the summer as it’s not too hot and so, so green and vivid.

I relaxed and had some time with my thoughts and time in prayer and time with my parents. And all of that was very good and very needed. And it has me carefully reevaluating the time I take to rest. In other words, I am making it a priority again. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 9/23/16”
