Psalms And Nature

The WordPress Photo Challenge this week is Happy Place – where do I go to renew?  The Psalms and nature offer renewal.  I love reading through the Psalms, and then beginning again.  They are always new, and a deep part of my life, at the same time.  The garden through the seasons also brings comfort and hope.  I often read the Psalms aloud.

Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.

Psalm 27: 14 (KJV)
