I find my solace most often in nature.
When I'm overwhelmed by the grittiness of life, the sadness, or the chaos; I take myself off into nature. I pack a lunch and walk into the mountains, or sit beside a stream. I look out over a lake and ponder the vagaries of life. I feel the wind brushing aside anxious thoughts and worry. I find a calmness that reminds me to live one day at a time.
Nature is God's handiwork. I feel His presence in the glorious wild flowers and sweet birdsong. I feel His love in the rustle of aspen leaves and sparkling rivulets. And so, nature is where I turn for peace.
