Creation sings the Father's song. Most of us don't realize the incredible benefits of being outside. This Summer, I want to encourage you to get outside! Do something you enjoy, whether it be - getting a paper route (bonus: you make money!), skipping, skateboarding, rollerblading, biking, running (I love it!), walking, swimming, or orienteering. Get creative. Maybe the normal basketball you do inside a gym could be transferred outside during the long summer days - ask your parents to install a basketball net onto your garage! Or, if you normally go swimming inside, go to an outdoor pool! What a treat! Here are a few more ways to get outside this Summer:

   Make it a goal! Try taking a walk in God's creation every day. You could make a "scavenger" hunt, and look for things on your walks. Or use the time to pray and reflect! 

Find a place outside to read your Bible! There is no prettier place to read His word then outside in His creation.

   Journal outside! 

   Plant a garden.

No matter how you choose to spend time outside, remember: 

If the Heavens declare the glory of God, get out there! 

   And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. Genesis 1:31
