Come On In.....

Hubs & I spent the last 3 days in the beautiful Carmel, here in California,
relaxing on the beach,
overeating at amazing restaurants,
exploring the curvy roads of the gorgeous residential areas
and hoarding all the yummy croissants 
at the B&B Breakfast Counter!

What is it about staring at the ocean?
The biggness, the vastness,
 the beauty that needs no man made assistance?

It is so calming & invigorating at the same time.
It felt so good to be away from it all,
to know that the "stuff" still exists
but you don't need to talk or think about it for a few hours.

This wonderful door was just an ordinary yard entrance
for Carmel-ites.
But for me it spoke to me about
choosing to enter the door of peace, 
rest & trust.

That is where I want to live.


  1. I love Carmel! Glad you had a great time!

  2. This made me think of the door/gate into Narnia in one of the later books. Gorgeous.

  3. Beautiful photograph. Love Carmel. Sounds like you had a fabulous time.

  4. I love this door! And yes, we must choose to walk through the door of peace and rest! Thank you!

  5. Ohhhh me too! Looks so serene and inviting! Hope you are having a wonderful time!

  6. Beautiful post Brenda! You and your Hubby know how to LIVE!

  7. Everyone is posting about going to the beach. ugh! I am so jealous...I love the door, btw. It's so beautiful.
