When life is hectic, schedules are demanding, deadlines are screaming, fear is raging, or heartaches are overwhelming; STOP! Take a moment for a physical or mental walk in the forest. Even Jesus admonishes us to “come away and rest for a while” (Mark 16:31).
The stately cedars whisper
The rustling, tarnished leaves dance.
The sun pierces the forest density,
And I am peace.
Have you had times when you’ve needed a few moments of down time? Did a few moments in the forest bring you a much needed respite of peace in the storms of life? Where else have you found restoration? Please share with us.
