Thank you today (and every day) to the Earth.
Over the past five years or so, I have re-fallen in love with nature and the endless beauty, peace, and connectedness that I receive from it.
I absolutely adore John Muir and his beautiful teachings he received from the Earth. The above quote is so true. You expect greatness and grandeur when you’re in nature, but nature gives you so much more than just a pretty sight to look at. It is restorative. It is church. It is life.
Just like the photo, as I walked in Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota, I did not expect to encounter this humble bison. But it taught me that the Earth not only gives life to us, but to all creatures, plants, and life forces that inhabit this planet.
Earth is the ultimate giver. Let’s love her…a lot. Like she loves all of us.
