Thursday Trails: Stepping Outside of Depression

I love hiking the trails out our local nature parks. I don’t think, I don’t worry, and I don’t plot and plan. I am a child, with a camera and my God becomes bigger than my depression, insomnia and grief. Time stands still as I breath more deeply and gain new perspective.

Comment about some of your favorite parks or trails. How does nature expand your faith and shrink your depression?

    Everything created is designed to teach the soul…

  2. Is it not written on the good book, let anxiety be but give to God your lamentations, cries and tears and in turn just listen watch and learn from nature. One way or another it will nurture our soul and keep it sane and just follow what needs to be done. Depression or not, nature does nurtures.

    Good insight LouAnn! I love opening my front door in the morning to the sunrise! I also really enjoy the neighbors’ gardens. The variety and love that goes into their designs always brings a smile.

    So much to learn from Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Both really used nature to describe the nature of God. I need to reread Tolkien’s books. It has been a while.
