December 7: Appreciation of Nature’s Stillness

            Amidst the busyness of humanity, we take time to appreciate the stillness of nature. We give thanks to God for this peaceful creation, for the quiet of the prairie and the tranquility of the forest. We acknowledge the calm created by the order of God’s creation and seek respite there from our chaotic lives. We commit ourselves to preserving the last bits of natural quiet left on God’s Earth. No matter how preoccupied we may become with human constructs, may we always remember the gifts God has given us through nature’s stillness.
