NATURE BALM


Life often brings hardship without explanation. Losses that hit like tidal waves, rolling and swelling and unrelenting.

I believe that God provided nature as a balm. To stay inside is to refuse treatment.

Somehow, sitting on a rock watching the sun sink into a lake brings peace.

Climbing upward trails until you're gasping at those few oxygen molecules that live at high elevations clears a foggy mind.

Gazing into an endless expanse of stars bonds the world and all of its hardships together, and lets us know that we are not alone.

Sometimes we need a little outdoor therapy to put life into perspective.
