I am fresh back from Alaska where I was treated to a bounty of natural wonders. Mountain vistas of snow-capped peaks, flowing waterfalls, soaring eagles, sun-soaking seals, and feasting humpbacks were just a few of the jaw-dropping trip highlights.

Nature has a way of putting us back into our place. It reminds us that we are but a tiny cog in a huge winding interwoven web of life which connects us all. Nature rejuvenates body, mind, and spirit. It reminds us what peace is meant to be.

As we seek answers and search for solutions to bettering ourselves, take the time to appreciate the beauty that is all around us. Find the calming energy that we all seek in the wonder of nature’s creatures and their surroundings. Everyone needs time with nature!  Sometimes it takes some reminding.

  1. You are so right Karl and one does not necessarily have to go to Alaska to experience the peace and awe that comes from experiencing God’s wonder creations. A leisurely stroll through a botanical garden or a quiet walk in the park is exhilaration enough to the senses but going to such remote parts of the world is pretty choice way to experience all of creation. I recommend it to anyone who needs centering and purpose. I am glad to share it with you my good friends..
