I have been feeling indoors-bound. I go to work in the dark, I come home at sunset and by the time we eat, it is dark. I worked all day yesterday and although my plan was to walk around the front yard of the hospital, it was too busy to squeeze that in (plus it rained). So, when I woke up to realize it wasn’t cold and wasn’t raining, I was pumped to go on a field trip.
I brought my camera and got some lovely pictures of the Fall leaves while Patrick laughed at me and intermittently threatened to throw me in the heaps of leaves in the bushes (which I would have loved had it not been all soggy from last night’s rain). We watched the dogs run around the off-leash area and talked and enjoyed the fresh air.
Some people say they don’t need church because they can worship God in nature. I still feel strongly about going to church because I feel like I need the fellowship and accountability and such. But, given my need for sleep this morning (because I had almost none last night), I had to miss out, nature was a good second church.
So much beauty!
It was the best hour I have had in a while.
