Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
November 17th - thankful for nature
Plant seeds of happiness hope, success and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.
Most of us know that being in nature is very healing. You don’t need to be a doctor to realize how we feel better when we are outside in nature.
If you have tired eyes from working on the computer all day, rest your eyes on something green.
If you are stressed after a long day of work, a walk around a park should do the trick.
Apart from providing us with food and medicinal herbs, simply being among greenery can revive weary spirits.
There are plenty of ways we can be in harmony with nature, even while in the city. For instance keeping indoor potted plants in our homes or tiny herb gardens on a kitchen window shelf.
I love being outdoors and am thankful I have a safe place to walk and enjoy the beauty of each day. Just sitting on my sun porch looking out is a beautiful sight for me. With the large tree in my yard, I get to see the seasons as they pass by each year. Right now the tree is just about bear and will be hibernating over the winter until it comes back to life in the Spring.
I’m not much of a fan of winter but it is a part of nature that has much to teach us. We should be like the trees and take rest after the business of the summer season so that we can progress and grow into the nxxt season.
There is much to learn and beauty to be found right where you are Each moment is filled with hope, anticipation and joy. The cold weather makes us appreciate the clothing we need to be warm. It’s an invitation to hunker down and settle in. To let the fire warm you and the perfect time to enjoy home.
The snow covers everything, all the mud and dirt and imperfections in our lawns snd makes everything clean and beautiful.
A seed has to die and be covered up until it can grow and bloom into a flower. Take rest and prepare to grow in the spring. That’s my lesson of winter.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountains and the sea are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
