Nature's Spirit

The other day, we went to Waterton National Park. I love this place. It always feels like we are transported into Austria when we are driving up to the town.

It has majesty and beauty, and we felt the calm serenity of it all.

Knowing of my new goal, to help my kids "hear the music of the gospel" I took each of my three oldest aside separately at different times and just pointed out the beauty. I told them each how God has given us this nature to bless us and to teach us, and I had them notice the spirit that is inevitably felt when surrounded by such nature.

This seems so little. But this was oh so good for me to do. This is the first of many blogs here, I hope. Where I will share how I've helped my kids feel the spirit, so they can know God at a depth that will help them throughout their lives.
