God Delights in Nature And We Should, Too! 

(by Natalie)

If you think about it, God did not have to make trees.  He did not have to make beautiful lilies.  Nope, he didn’t have to make the amazing rainforest.  Nor did he need to create woods, hills, streams, valleys or meadows!  But he did.  He did it for our enjoyment!  I find it amazing to think that God did this for us.  For our enjoyment.  After all, he did not really have to create all of the beautiful landscapes we see every day.  But he did!  God delights in nature – and so should we!  In fact, there is a whole chapter dedicated to showing just how much God enjoys nature.  (Please read Psalm 104.)  A verse in Psalm 104 reads: “O LORD, how manifold are your works!  In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.”

Something my family has enjoyed is the “penny walk” idea.  Take a penny with you and, at each corner, take turns flipping the penny.  Go left for “tails” and right for “heads”.  (Who knows where the penny will take you!)

Another idea for the family to have fun with is the “A-Z walk”.  You simply find things in nature for every letter of the alphabet.  Example: “A—ant”, “B—brook”, “C—caterpillar” and soon.

When walking be sure to take along your camera.  You never know what you might find lurking around the next bend—and nature has some of the best pictures that are just waiting to be taken!

You could also try having a picnic—even in your own backyard, or why not get a beautiful journal and sketch the active wildlife and breath-taking scenery all around you?

We, too, should delight in nature – just as much as God does!  He made it so we can explore it!  Live the adventure!
