so refreshing

I was feeling really stir crazy, so I bundled up and headed outside. It was wonderful! The snow was coming down....there were mounds of snow all over the place. I just walked and talked to Dad and really just felt so much stress leave me. The cold air is so refreshing and the sunshine reflecting off the snow so beautiful! I don't know, there is just something about being out in nature that allows me to get closer to Jesus. It is like the barriers just break down and there is nothing that is in the way of that connection. The noise of the world seems to just stop...even though there is noise out there it isn't the same as being confined somewhere. And when I just still my mind and focus I can actually hear the leaves and the birds and the air (I know that sounds strange, but stillness really does have a sound).
Thank You Father for the beauty that is nature and that I have the freedom to just go enjoy it whenever I feel the need. You are the greatest Artist! You are my Provider, my Healer, my Best Friend, my Love........I could go on and on, so easier said You are my Everything.
