I think there's a reason why the story of creation does not include, "and then God made a wooden structure for the people to live in. It had four walls and it sheltered them and kept them inside, away from the creation He had just made." Don't get me wrong, I am so grateful for my house! And I know shelter is so necessary and there are many who are living without it.
But I just went for a short morning walk! It is sunny and beautiful and birds are singing and the air is filled with the smells of Spring. And I'm pretty sure my heart almost burst at the joy it brought me. I would not call myself an outdoorsy kind of girl in the least. But there is something wonderful being outside in the middle of all that God created. Especially first thing in the morning when everything is waking up.
And can I get a "WOOT WOOT" for the sunshine. Because if it had been gray and raining today this blog post would most likely not have been written. Instead I would have written about how amazing hot coffee is and how I love sitting in a comfy chair with it in the morning.
Moral of the story: GO OUTSIDE TODAY!! YOU WILL LOVE IT!!
