Contemplate nature and find “reserves of strength”

2/26/2021

The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof, the world and all who dwell therein. (Psalm 50:12)
Contemplate nature and find “reserves of strength”
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.  (Rachel Carson)
Apply the words above to these admonitions:
Pay attention, be astonished, and be thankful 
(Mary Oliver—revised)
