Day 25: Out in Nature

There’s something so utterly refreshing and peaceful about immersing yourself in nature…

I have always been such an indoor girl, but my heart often yearns to step outside my comfort zone and embrace all of God’s magnificent creations. And every time I do, I never regret it.

I have sat on the shores of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans; I have waded in lakes and streams and creeks; I have walked through wheat fields and corn fields and gazed out over expansive plains; I have hiked hills and mountains; I have rested under the shade of trees and napped on the sand.

These outdoor spaces have been perhaps the most peaceful of my life and I have felt closer to heaven than anywhere else–except for the holy temple.

God’s handiwork is magnificent. And just stepping out into the wonderland of His creations electrifies me with awe.

Today we enjoyed a family day–eating at a restaurant, going to a movie, and weaving our way through a corn maze.

I was revived with the fresh air and tranquility.

How do you connect with nature?

If you ever need to come alive and strike a fresh sense of marvelous within you, step outside.
