Linking up with Dayle at Simple Pleasures
Go outside...amidst the simple beauty of nature...and know that as long as places like this exist, there will be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be." Anne Frank
June 3rd....summer's here and it's hit with a whomp!!!! Hot. Humid and everything in brilliant color. I like to be out in the woods and even on the hot humid days that's where my heart pulls me. I often drag my kids with me. They usually start out whining about how hot and tired they are but once in the thick of the woods they start to really enjoy being outside. And sheltered by the trees is a great way to stay cool. This week I'm grateful for:
-living near so much incredible nature stuff. Our home is on the lake and we live near mountains and hills and an incredible bird sanctuary.
-being able to see and smell the awesomeness of His creation. The smell of some of the flowers and plants are better than anything man made.
-seeing the many spring babies that have recently hatched. There's a thrill in watching them grow.
-our like-minded neighbours who are just as crazy about the natural environment we live in as we are. Those who are older often point out so many neat things to us and they love teaching my kids the names of birds and flowers and plants.
-And mostly...that He loved us enough to give us the wonderful gift of His creation.
