A glance out the window-
Flares in my soul.
Soak in the wonder
It is early Saturday morning as I lift the blinds. My eyes rest on the pure, fluffy, white snow that overnight turned the world into a winter game of hide-n-seek. I feel a pull deep inside- tugging me to get out there.
So I check my weather app. It feels like 5 degreees. Ohhh-do I really want to go. Another glance outside and my soul bellows, “Go, experience this!”
The crunch of crisp snow graces my ears as I step over untouched snow. I warm as I walk soaking in the sun’s rays and blue skies. The cold air touches the bottom of my lungs refreshing me with each breath.
As I loop back, I am so grateful that I answered the summons nature sent to me this morning. What a new perspective I have for the rest of my day to come.
I realize that nature calls to me through all 4 seasons....
~ Bright summer sunshine caressing all in its breadth
~ Raindrops pattering amongst the spring puddles
~ Leaves of russet and gold tumbling through the autumn skies
~ Snowflakes enveloping the world in a quiet, pristine blanket of white
I need to be open to the call and wander outside to see the gifts given to me by nature. It refreshes, renews and rejuvenates me.
Nature beckons and I need to continue to say yes.
