John Muir said,” in every walk with nature, one receives more than he seeks”. I have found that to be true many times. I enjoy taking walks in the mountains, by a lake or by a stream. It is refreshing to see all the beautiful little details and the unparalleled beauty that God has created for us to experience in nature. As St. Jerome stated, “We marvel at the Creator, not only as the One who made Heaven and Earth, but also the small creatures.”As I see the loving care God gives in nature, it reminds me how much more God cares and loves you and me. Because of that great love He has given us, it should motivate us to trust in Him more in our personal lives. Emerson described it this way…” All that I have seen, teachers me to trust the Creator, for all I have not seen.”I hope, that whenever you can, you will take the opportunity for a walk and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. It will rekindle and encourage your faith. Jesus said…” If God gives such attention to the appearance of flowers, don’t you He will attend to you, take pride in you, do what is best for you?” – Matthew 6:30 (The Message). Amen … And let Heaven and nature sing in our hearts and minds today!
