One must have sunshine

“Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” Hans Christian Andersen

Because of the time change, I woke up this morning to a glorious orange sunrise over Barfield Bay….without even taking my head off my pillow. What a way to experience God in nature first thing! And that’s not all. Yesterday as I took my visiting friends down our little path to the water, a dolphin swam by greeting my nature-loving friend, Laurie, on her birthday. Then we went on an airboat ride through the Everglades. My “Nature Bucket” is filled!

If you are experiencing sadness, grief, or feeling just a tad sorry for yourself today, get outside. If you’re in the Midwest, perhaps you’re seeing the crocus peek out. Even if the day isn’t beautiful you’ll feel better having experienced a bit of nature.

Affirmation: Nature is a gift. It brings me joy.

Coaching question: What is your favorite thing in nature? What aspect of nature brings you closer to God?
