We have hiked around the same lake nearly everyday for the last 2 months. Nature speaks so many lessons if only we take the time to stop and listen. By studying creation, we learn about our Creator!
We have enjoyed the beauty of the blossoming flowers and butterflies drinking of the sweet nectar.
We have observed creatures great and small...
and studied evidence of their existence left behind.
We have looked high and low. We have sat and we have listened.
We have enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets; the miracles that bookend each day.
Oh, if only you could hear the stories these woods have heard as sisters skip along.
There is a place for books and worksheets, but the lessons learned on these trails are ones not easily forgotten. I'll leave you with this poem to ponder.
