“Nature itself lifted its voice in a melodic chorus of profound beauty”

The winding track from the campsite quickly changed drastically as I walked towards the coastline. On either side rolling forested hills gave way to coastal grassland, broken by a meandering river that wound its way effortlessly towards the ocean. Looking out yonder towards the distant mountains I was captivated by the stark contrast  in landscape. Magnificent clouds strewn across Heaven, crowned the distant mountains. I paused in silence for long moments; there was no need for words. Nature itself lifted its voice in a melodic chorus of profound beauty. The gentle churning of the water, mingled with the fleeting whisper of the wind dancing about, rustling through the treetops and blades of grass. It was quite a long time before I reluctantly continued my walk into the virgin wilderness that lay before me.

“Standing in reverent silence, I was humbled before such magnificence”

Wandering along the seashore, I smiled as my feet marked out a path of desolate footprints along the fine brown sand; the waters of the flowing river lapped gently at my feet. I smiled with childlike innocent joy as I felt the sun’s warmth course through my body. All alone surrounded by the beauty of nature I experienced an immense sense of belonging and peace well within me. Slowly looking up towards heaven itself, I was seized by the sheer beauty of what lay before me. The sound of flowing water coursing towards the ocean mingled with the soft wind that gently caressed my face, manifesting a heavenly chorus. The pure white clouds spreading their celestial beauty across the blue Heaven struck a deep chord within my soul. Standing in reverent silence, I was humbled before such magnificence. Deep within the depths of my mind heart and soul I rejoiced at the providence of God and His amazing outpouring of love as experienced in His Creation.
