This week, I want to focus on the power of Nature to soothe a soul.
We have some beautiful weather here today and we took full advantage of it. It was the perfect afternoon to take the kids out and enjoy the beauty of one of our local parks.
They have a beautiful section of the park with a small waterfall and babbling brook at the bottom. It was such a perfect small setting to enjoy a little sunshine and the peaceful surrounding green grass, trees swaying in the breeze. Top that off with the gentle sound of the waterfall and it was the perfect way to fill your soul.
It was nice to let the kids explore (away from electronics-yay!) for a bit while I relaxed and took in the surroundings. A win-win for both of us. I always find it so peaceful and calming to just sit in a nature inspired place and look at the surroundings.
I think we so often take advantage of the beauty and awe of the nature God blessed us with. So it’s so important to look around, really LOOK around and take it all in. It is so soothing and soul refreshing to just intentionally be present out there.
I encourage you to give it a try today. Hopefully your community has a wonderful place to sit and observe too. But if not, no worries, just step outside of your own house/apartment/etc. and take in what you see.
See what it can do for your soul! I promise you it will be worth it!
