Refreshing

Greer City Park, Summer of 2019

One of the places I enjoyed visiting this summer was the local park where I live in Greer, SC. This is a place near where I live that offers me a lot of comfort when I visit here.

Taking a walk before the heat of the day was one of the many things I appreciate about our city park. The swings by the water fountain are another favorite spot in the park that I find relaxing and peaceful. I can often sit here among the birds, water, flowers, and sunshine and I will find myself immersed in writing a story, poem, or an article of some kind. The noise of nature is calming and peaceful to me. It is here that I find rest and I can talk more intimately with God. Soon, whatever troubles I am facing will often find an answer or a solution when I seek solace here.

What about you? Where do you go to find peace and contentment? Do you have a favorite spot in your community that really speaks Gods’ wisdom to you? Is there a verse of scripture that seems relevant to you in your special place? If so, please share it below. I would enjoy hearing from you.

When I spend time in my local park, I think of Psalm 23. These words are just as cleansing to my soul as the sounds of water is refreshing to my mind.

I hope you will take time today to enjoy something in your part of the world that brings your soul some care. This may be the greatest gift you can give yourself and one that offers your life renewal.
