Did you get out to walk today? If you are fortunate enough to be mobile, you likely made foot (or shoe) contact with the earth. Maybe it was just a short distance across a sidewalk or parking lot on your way to work or school? Or perhaps you traveled over a dirt path or gravel or rocks.
If you had the pleasure of going on a walk or hike, you might have traversed over hills, a mountain, through a valley, plains, desert, or by lakes or streams.
But on days when we're busy, do we give much thought to where we go? Think about where you walked today. Do you know what was beneath the sidewalk or asphalt before the land was filled with houses, buildings, or streets? Might the land you stepped on been a pastureland, wheat or cotton fields, an orchard, a garden or farm? Or a forest, meadow, or wildlife sanctuary?
When the day is done, do you peek into the night sky to see the moon? And this time of year, do you look for the immense “Harvest Moon” as it lights up the ground around you? Such a glorious sight it is!
Sometimes we forget to immerse ourselves in nature, even that of our own backyards or city parks. Often, we get so busy looking for "things" to inspire us, that we forget to seek moments of inspiration through God's creation.
Where have you walked in God's land of creation today? The gift of His harvest is all around you. Go and seek, for the earth He created lies beneath your feet.
