breath of fresh air

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Ever have those days, where its just not right to be inside. I had this feeling last night. I got off work and wanted to be anywhere but home (Shelli isn't home until about 8:30 pm, so thats probably why). Some days its just too beautiful outside to be inside, others, you just need fresh air no matter what the weather is like.

Yesterday, I was off work, home and out the door again before that door shut behind me. No more claustrophobic apartment. Just the grandeur of God's creation, once I left the busy traffic behind anyways. I wound up a couple miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, just for fun. I hiked around for a while and snapped off some photos. It will never cease to amaze me the things God will use, at random, to refresh my soul. I just needed something alive and fresh, something majestic to breathe life into me. This helped. A lot. I enjoy the outdoors, I grew up in Moab for Pete's sake, but I do not enjoy it nearly as much as many I know. Many thrive in it. But for me, it is the occasional breath of fresh air I need.

I will leave you with some photos and a question: Whats your breath of fresh air?
