We got a break in the rain today so I pulled out the old bicycle and did my usual ride on our greenway system. Today was different in that there were fewer people out because it was still cloudy and looked like it might rain at any second, but the ride was worth the risk. It was nice to not have the sun out. It made it so much cooler even though, as it usually is here in the southern United States, the humidity was very high. It makes the air feel sometimes like walking around in a warm, thick blanket you wish you could get rid of but unfortunately cannot.
Most of our regular walkers must have stayed in because of the rain threat so for most of my ride I had the greenway pretty much to myself. It was very relaxing, and I shared the morning with mostly a few stately old trees and wildflowers still clinging on through to the end of August. It was very peaceful and quiet. Nature’s beauty can have a calming effect if you will allow it to. Thank You and Praise You, God, for making the world so beautiful just for our pleasure! Below is a quick poem that came in the middle of my bike ride. Have a blessed day!!
Nature will talk If you will take the time To listen Allow yourself a walk Among the unspoken words She's anxious to say Always attempting To improve your day!
