It is cold today.
No snow. It rarely snows in South Florida.
I am happy.
If Nature brings the low temperatures I know this is her way to rid this place of undesirables.
I go today to see our gift; I wonder what surprise is awaiting.
Today the cold is here also. The time is before noon.
I stand in this warm sand, yet again. I feel the warmth it gives my shoeless feet. The Sun and Earth have once again done this.
I look up and feel the warmth on my face, yet I am dressed for the cold. I feel the cold in my bones and the warmth in my feet.
The Sun smiles back and tells me, wait. Wait on me. I won’t fail. I will warm the air as I rise in the sky. Be patient. I am here.
I change my plans this cold morning. I will do as nature tells me. I will make my walk again, just after the Sun reaches its high place; the place Nature moves her fire to.
The fire’s rightful place, the place in space where warmth comes.
Again I walk away at peace.
I have been called by the Water and Nature has given me yet another lesson.
A lesson of patience, a reason to know things are different this cold morning.
Everyday Nature is in charge.
I do not question Natures control over the Sun to keep the sand warm for my feet to walk upon and the beauty she has given me yet again.
I walk away with peace in my cold body.
I walk away with knowledge.
I walk away with Natures lesson she has taught today.
I am cold. I will wait to return. I know the warmth is on its way. I will return to see the Power that resides in my beloved place.
This is a good day.
