Appreciate

There are times when we need to relax and appreciate. This morning I went for a walk in the park close to our house, and for some odd reason I sat down on a bench and thought to myself, “slow down, relax, appreciate the park, the trees, the ground that I was walking, on and the air that I was breathing.

To appreciate means “to put value into” —to make precious.
When we relax and make something precious like our surroundings, our neighbors, our loved ones, it is a form of reaching out to them, and before you know it they reach back. When you appreciate something you start to expand, your heart and soul grow large, and you start to tap into God’s spirit.
How do you know when you have tapped in to the holy spirit, when it reaches back.
Have a great weekend.
