Take Joy In Your World

Put your coat on ... and go out into your world today. Take your dog for a walk. Commune with nature a little -- let its restorative beauty bring a sense of peace to your mind and re-connect your heart to the One who designed it all in the first place.

Notice how red the berries look. Or how the ice or snow forms over them. Laugh at the magpies when they lecture from a tree top because you forgot to set out their daily peanut portion.

Watch how the blue shadows shift on piles of snow or how fog patches settle in low places. Greet the cheery snowman. Listen to the wind sough through evergreen boughs. Pay attention to how the evening shadows fall and the way the winter sunset barely tinges the sky that peachy pink.

Go out into your world today. And take joy in it.

  1. We did that very thing this afternoon. Alas, there was no snow or ice, but waves whipped by the wind and clean fresh sea air to breathe.

  2. Lovely post. I did this earlier today. We don't have any snow on the ground here, but it is chilly in a good sort of way - cold, but not bitterly so. After walking around the yard and taking note of a few things, I went ahead and trimmed back all of my perennial pots that had wintered over. It felt good to get them all ready to bloom again come spring.

  3. Beautiful words to go with beautiful pictures . . . I had a dog (my son's) to walk outside this week, that was fun!

  4. Lovely, Brenda - those ice encased berries are just so beautiful! Nice reminder to take pleasure in the season - very uplifting. xo Karen
