Washed By The Water LIVE by NEEDTOBREATHE on Grooveshark


There’s nothing more peaceful to me than the ocean.  Even these photos surely bring my blood pressure down a bit.    My favorite colors are those found somewhere in the ocean.  And how about that salt air?  Is there anything better? OK…  a few smells compete.
The sounds of the ocean?  hello.  puts my sometimes anxious heart to rest, every time.
You’ll always find me smiling  if I’m near the ocean.
(:

    I completely agree. When my husband and I first started talking about our future (when we were dating), I just asked him one thing: can we please always live by the ocean/water. It's my happy place. Although I'm not as close to the ocean now as I was living in Sarasota and St. Augustine, whenever I get a little stressed my husband suggests a drive to the water. & it works every time.

    Beautiful photos Sarah!!! xo

    I couldn't agree more. For me it's the repetition of the waves, but the water is instantly calming and soothing.

    This needtobreathe song is one of my absolutely favorites. Their music is beautifully raw, often with a faith-filled message. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. I especially appreciate them as a desert native.
