God's Creation Is Good Therapy

Well, I just got back from a lovely trip to the lake!  The views were amazing and the weather just as delightful!  The fishing wasn't bad either, LOL!  It was so refreshing to just take in the wonderful experience of God's creation.  I believe it's one of the best stress-busters!  I would rather sit in our little boat, floating on the lake, looking at the sunset or sunrise, the trees, the wild flowers, the water, the sky, the birds, the animals, than be in a plush condo.  There's just something calming about appreciating the creations that only God can make.  The creations of man are amazing, but nothing like a Bald Eagle flying overhead (which we had 4 sightings of either Bald Eagles or Osprey, I'm not sure which they were, but they were awesome), a group of river otters playing in the water along the river bank, or the fresh smell of the trees and ground after a rain.  All of which man cannot create, only an Almighty God, who displays His works all around us.  If we take the time to breathe it in and be thankful, we benefit from it, both spiritually and emotionally.  Take a few moments each day to look at all He has created and give Him thanks!!!  It will do you good!!
