Have you ever found yourself walking quietly in a field, a garden or the countryside? How soothing to have your thoughts clear, you feel refreshed and renewed. It is like you are rediscovering yourself and your special place in this world...you are alone and yet you are not. You feel God's presence and every significant detail around you is important...the leaves on the evergreens, the bare branches waiting their turn to be dressed with lovely foliage, the growing plants, old trunks reaching up to the sky...and among all of this you are re-born!
And if you cannot reach your own 'garden' space, you can still experience these special moments...just find a quiet chair, sofa, rocker, or your favourite reading corner, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, then imagine yourself walking along a quiet path among beautiful flowers, shrubs, trees, and experience God's miracle of life as you feel how important and special you are in His Garden of Love.
