Busying Myself with Nature in Tumultuous Times

During the revolution, when I felt despair invading my veins, making its way to move my heart, I looked to nature to soothe my nerves and calm my mind. And nature always delivers, uplifting my spirits. The wind carries a soft but sure whisper that everything is going to turn out for the better. That it is always darkest before dawn. These days I am found pondering God’s creation, with my camera producing a few mirror images of God’s glory. Because I can depend on God, the Eternal, while everything else turns chaotic. And I can depend on the sun to always rise.

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour if we will only tune in.” ~ George Washington Carver

“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.” ~ e. e. Cummings

“Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts.” ~ Alan Cohen

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” ~ John Burroughs

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature, and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

~ Anne Frank
