I love the great outdoors; it offers so much yet requires so little from us because usually what happens in the atmosphere we mortal beings have nothing to do with. It is a blessing for me to know right now that no one else can control what goes on when the wind blows, and I hear the birds chirping, the ducks quacking near the pond across the road, the buzzing of the bees, the rustling of the trees as the wind blows through them, and even the rain cascading down from the sky, but today I add another one that I had not really noticed and that is the crunching of the dried leaves under my feet as I walked on them, these sounds all remind me that God is with me. The sound makes the difference! It becomes a way of letting us know and remind us that we are not alone even when we don't see a physical person, God is always with us but also nothing can take the place of what God has for us, because man can only duplicate what God produces. Listen for the real sound, and watch how it has an affect on you. Do away with the carbon copy!
