I am moved by nature. I am constantly stunned by it’s beauty and intricacies. I love nature. The aromatic flowers, leaves of many colors and shapes, water of all kinds, shapes and sizes, animals and insects and everything else about it. I am especially moved by clouds and the sky. To me, the sky is like God’s canvas and every day and every moment, when you look up, it’s a different picture. Clouds change shapes and sizes, the color in the morning and evening add to those clouds and it all brings me such joy.
I love nature, but I can’t fully explain why it moves me so much, but maybe I will by the time this post is finished. If I had to guess, it’s because it is pure and unencumbered. Other than storms, there is no drama about it. In most cases, I am guarded to some degree. Most people have no idea because it’s so much a part of who I am. It’s the way I live day-to-day. I rarely fully feel a moment. I can’t even name emotions, which I have mentioned before. However, with nature, I fully feel.
There is a freedom that I never feel anywhere else or in any other circumstance. When I am moved by what I see, I simply feel it. I’m moved and I feel with no thought involved. Freedom. That is the word. Other than my faith and the love I have for Jesus, when I am moved by His love, nature brings me freedom and emotion. I think the two go together. When I enjoy nature, it is a form of worshipping God. Psalm 19:1 even says ‘the heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands’. I guess that would explain why I am so mesmerized with the sky.
Here are a few of the many pictures I have taken of nature where I was moved so much a picture had to be made. I hope you enjoy them as well:
