Ok this entry is part of a challenge to blog something about me & nature. And what a great time to do it too...the snow has almost disappeared, the first crocuses and robins have been seen--in our own yard--and the weather is actually conducive to me wanting to be outdoors for my exercise.
One of my favourite signs of spring is that feeling in my feet when I can finally wear shoes instead of boots and feel the soft, no-longer-frozen earth pushing back at me when I'm walking. I've been relishing that as I walk a nearby trail. And watching the paired-off ducks on the brook, and inspecting the trees for new buds--this is a good time to be outside, and feeling the earth and the change of seasons.
The other thing I love about this is it puts me in touch with my Creator because I am experiencing the world as He made it and not just the man-made stuff that obscures it. Here I see His hand and am reminded that He is wise and good.
