In a world where everything is loud, where my brain screams, spins endlessly from the moment I awaken, nature is full of God’s peace.
But nature is not silent. Breezes ripple, leaves and twigs crackle as wildlife scurry about. Birds chirp, rivers bustle and roar.
Yet the sounds are made for reflection. Nothing artificial or contrived, they beg our bodies to stop and drink it in; feel the breeze chill our skin and sunshine cheer our smiles.
It is a powerful peace, one that separates us from the fears of the outside world. But if we can find that peace so close to home, why can’t we seem to keep it in our hearts?
