To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth- Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance, to understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles. Proverbs 1:2-6

Sometimes I feel like these walls, the walls of this house, are trapping my thoughts. So much is going on inside my head, but I can’t get coherent thoughts out. Not through talking or writing. It’s all just stuck up there like a jumbled mess. I need to get outside. I need the fresh air and lack of electrical devices demanding my attention. There is so much pressure to do things and think things. 

When I am outside the only thing I need to do is breathe. I stand there with the breeze sifting my thoughts. My heart is calm again. 

God’s creation has a way of doing that to me, pointing me back to Him. Who am I, that You are mindful of me? Psalm 8:4 echoes in my mind. God created all of this; the sun, moon, stars, and the lady bug sitting on the leaf next to my shoulder.

I need less stuff around me and more life.
