Took another walk to the shoreline this morning and really enjoyed the tranquility of a Saturday morning.
There is something magical about the sound of the ocean waves. The rhythmic sound of the waves crashing against the shore is powerful yet calming. It’s like a reminder that no matter what challenges we face, the ocean will still keep going and never give up.
Listening to the sound of ocean waves gave me a sense of peace; it felt like nothing was unsolvable. It certainly helped me to recharge and find strength. I think this is what the Bible means by “in quietness, and trust is your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). We all need to find our way of “quietness” to allow our Creator to speak to us and for us to channel our thoughts to Him. It may be a hike up the mountain, a walk in the forest, or simply sipping a cup of coffee at your dining table. Find your way of “quietness,” a way to regain your strength.
Chinese Version (中文版本）：
我想這就是聖經所說的 “得力在乎平靜安穩”（以賽亞書 30:15）。我們都需要找到讓自己“平靜安穩”的方法，讓我們的造物主能向我們說話，也讓我們能很舒暢地來到祂面前，向祂傾心吐意。這可能是爬山、在公園裡散步，或者只是靜靜地喝一杯咖啡。重新得力。找到你安靜的方式, 然後重新得力。
It’s the new year, and I wanted to restart something that I did ten years ago — keeping a thanksgiving journal to count my blessings daily. But instead of posting it on Facebook as I did ten years ago, this time is on my blog. God’s love and grace exist in little things around us, which are only noticeable through a thankful heart. I am looking forward to a year of thankfulness. And may my Daily Grace blog also be a blessing to everyone who reads it and be a source of inspiration and motivation for all of us to be more mindful and thankful for the small blessings we often take for granted.

I actually have a CD that has the sound of waves on a beach that I play at my office. I love it!
