If everyone were to snap and share a nature pictures every day, and if the recipients shared these and took and shared their own, then we could take over social media with the beauty in our world and increase appreciation for this amazing earth. When people feel peaceful, our world responds.
We just returned from a vacation spent connecting to creation by experiencing the best Mother Nature has to offer: critters, birds, rainforests, volcanoes, rivers, beaches, mountains, valleys, and blue skies. We met many wonderful people from all over the world and just shared being on this wonderful planet together. What a blessing!
With all the turmoil we endure, sometimes we just have to lift our spirits and help those around us do the same. It doesn't mean we ignore the events of the day, but it does mean we process with peace and love in our hearts. During these times, I try to get outside as much as I can, and before I know it, I am taking pictures of the beauty that surrounds me.
I invite you all to keep your cameras handy, go for a walk by yourself or with another, point to a piece of nature that captures your attention, and take photos of those connections with nature. Share them in conversation and social media posts for others to enjoy, too. If you want, share some of your pics in the comments below.
