What's high above, what's under foot?
Walk quietly over the forest floor,
There are endless mysteries to explore.
A leaf, a meadow, a babbling brook,
A path less traveled, that only you took.
Who made these things,
Do you wonder why?
Beauty abounds, just open your eyes!
We were out in the woods late, one evening, and
my son noticed how the sunset made all the trees look red. It is moments like that, when you know your children are aware of what's around them. A few weeks ago he said, "something smelled like those purple flowers that bloom in the spring." (lilacs)
Those are nature connections.
When we can engage all of our senses and connect them to everything God has created, we can see and feel His glory. That, to me, is what makes nature so beautiful and peaceful.
We had to try out a fire in their new fort. :) Below are A's mud pies she made by packing mud in clay pigeons we found in the woods. They dried overnight and came out "purfik."
We took a walk on a park trail. We've had a lot of rain and the creeks were flowing strong. I think she was feeling the breeze or maybe pretending to fly? I am learning how to step away and let the kids explore and wander on their own. (distant supervision)
My daughter loves to see the colorful sunsets. She laughs and says "look mommy, God likes pink, too."
