For you, LORD, have delivered me from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the LORD
in the land of the living.
~Psalm 116:8-9 NIV
Walking in the land of the living...I know, it has a spiritual meaning--spiritually alive rather than spiritually dead. But taking the Celtic view here (and none other, of course) the physical and the spiritual are not actually separate. The land of the living is right around me, and walking in nature certainly makes me aware that I am right now in the land of the living.
"Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You're closer to God's heart in a garden than any place else on earth." -- Dorothy Frances Gurney
I hope you'll get outside today!
