The sun came out today. The weather was absolutely perfect. My normal workout routine wasn’t enough for me, I needed to be outside to breathe in the fresh air. A few texts later Jered and I were on a walk through Alton Baker Park along the water. The late afternoon sun shown brightly through the bare winter branches creating strong shadows on the luscious, green grass. The warm sunshine made for an Two hours passed and my tired legs just barely brought me back home. And it was just what I needed. To be out among the elements, taking in what God has created.
And it’s times like these when Matthew 6 comes into my mind.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is life not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? …But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these thing will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
