I hear the trees.
In the mountains, our home is surrounded by the lush green foliage of pines, oaks, maples and elms. As the wind picks up speed, the trees rustle and move as though God has breathed a sigh and all of nature quivers with joy.
There is a special peace that comes when I take the time to sit and wait for nature’s call to my soul. Absent the cacophonus sounds of city life, there is the melodious chorus of birds, crickets, and the subtle flap of a hummingbird’s wings.
For a minute, my soul is calm and refreshed.
For a minute God speaks and calls to me.
I feel the presence of God and know that love surrounds me. It is the same for you. It only requires a willingness to listen.
Be still and know that He is God.
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. Psalm 96:12
