Spring is here today with the sun shining, the sky that beautiful blue, vegetation budding out, and the air so very fresh after a few days of refreshing rain. While Reggie and I were walking this morning, I took many deep breaths of the fresh, after-rain air that smells so good. It took me back to living in the Los Angeles area and the smell of smog when I walked. I thought about the exhaust from the cars that my dog breathed each day as we walked. I wouldn’t let that dog drink from the water running in the street as I didn’t know if there were chemicals from lawn spraying. I didn’t notice the smog while I lived there unless it was very bad.
The air and water here make me so grateful that Reggie and I have clean, fresh air to breathe almost every day, and that Reggie can drink from the clean water flowing down the street after the rain.
What precious pure gifts these are from nature with which to fill our bodies, hearts, and souls! That I am aware at so much deeper a level brings a new layer of appreciation for my spiritual journey. It makes each moment more special with all the blessings from the weather, the earth, and Spirit. Nancy and Reggie♥
