I usually take my Bible so that I can do my daily reading in front of the ocean. Somehow it seems more fitting. In that setting and all alone, I feel safe praying out loud with my eyes open, looking up at the sky instead of at the back of my eyelids. There's something precious about starting the day that way, remembering that I'm a tiny speck of a person on an insignificant planet but that God is still listening intently as though I'm the only thing going on. It's been good.
