I am a midwest girl...I turn to the woods. I want to be surrounded by something bigger than myself. I want the wonder and awe of God's creation to engulf me. Because I do not live near the awesome wonder of the Rocky Mountains or Montana's Big Sky country...I turn to the woods.
I love the quiet of the woods, the amazing variety of different plants and trees, the sounds of the birds and squirrels rustling in the dry leaves and the scent of pine needles filling my nose. That is what I needed today.
I got bad news at work. Nothing that can't be thought through and overcome. Just not today. I needed to get out of the office and out of my head. I needed some prayerful quiet time in the woods. So I headed to the Arboretum with my camera and walked with God.
My pictures are below. Check out the amazing, creative, wonder of God that accompanied me today.
