Inspiration in Nature
Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons in Arizona! It’s a fabulous time to get out and enjoy the cooler weather and take in all of God’s glory — through the changing of the leaves, the harvest moons, and the amazing rainbow-painted sunrise and sunsets. Fellowship Square sees God’s touch in nature all year round and for those that are looking for inspiration this season, seniors can look around to see all the heavenly blessings in nature.
Fellowship Square encourages seniors to get outside in this beautiful fall weather and be inspired by nature.
Sunrise is one of the most glorious times to soak up heaven’s touch. The onset of a new day brings all sorts of amazing opportunities and a fresh start. There is also growing evidence that watching the sunrise (without looking directly at the sun!) with naked eyes (no glasses on or contacts in) can help heal the eyes and the body in all sorts of positive ways. Sitting outside in the morning when the only sounds are the ones of the birds chirping is a great way to recognize all of God’s blessings and a good time to give thanks.
Early risers get the benefit of this opportunity daily. It’s a great time to meditate or have a personal conversation with the Lord. Try taking in the sunrise or the sunset daily to get inspiration from nature.
The changing of the leaves in the fall is another beautiful blessing from Mother Nature and the heavens. Those that like to road trip can find multiple opportunities for viewing fall foliage throughout Arizona, and desert dwellers can enjoy the blooming cacti and plants that grow naturally in the valley. These are beautiful displays of nature’s art and a great photo opportunity for budding or professional photographers!
Birding is another fantastic way to get in touch with nature — and the Lord. Bird watching can be done solo or with a group and there are so many stunning birds to view right here in Arizona. With a little research or the help of an app, seniors can discover the best times and places to view beautiful birds.
Simply sitting outside and enjoying the weather, the clouds passing by or the sound of the rain on a stormy fall evening are wonderful ways to get inspired by nature and all that God provides. Connecting with nature is a beautiful way to see and receive God’s glory and to reconnect with Him as well.
