I think nature has such a calming, meditative affect on people’s souls because it’s where we come from. We have a connection to nature that humans may not always understand. It refreshes. It soothes and heals. It is beautiful. It is alive and offers energy. We thrive there.
God created the heavens and the earth, and I like to think that nature is a gift right from His imagination, the most beautiful thing He created (besides us, of course!). We look around an see a concrete world created by man, filled with both beauty and ugliness, but nature and all its wonders are the landscapes painted right from God’s hands. What could be more perfect? Our beautiful world is a gift. Next time you go into nature and see something wonderful or feel the presence of God, know that is what He wanted us to see and experience in this world. This is where we are meant to live and thrive,
When you take a moment to stop and look around, this life can be pretty amazing.
