My reflection today:
“The birds and animals, trees and grasses, rocks, water, and wind are our allies. They weaken our senses, rouse our passions, renew our spirits, and fill us with vision, courage, and joy….
As long as the birds return and the flowers bloom, I will dream of a time when we value blue skies more than new automobiles, count our wealth in joy rather than possessions, and dwell in peace and balance with the earth. I am not without hope.” – David Gaines
During this pandemic, many people have turned to nature for consolation. God has given us all these wonderful, beautiful, natural gifts. I love the line, count our wealth in joy rather than possessions. Amen!
