"If you truly love nature, you truly love God. In the world of Nature, you will find beauty everywhere there is life; all you have to do is look. Experience an early morning stroll through woodlands, across fields and down country lanes and savour this experience as your first blessing of the day. Every plant, creature, bird, tree, stream, hedgerow and blade of grass you pass contains life of the Creation. You can go into the woods in spring, summer, autumn and winter and have your imagination run wild or be soothed and healed by the naturalness of your surroundings and have all your senses restored to order. All of this can be yours, simply for the taking. Would that I could take it still; far far better to experience Nature and become a living part of it than to write about it.
There is nothing more romantic to the soul than to be in love with the green earth and to delight in the cosmos of colours and the fragrant splendour that intoxicates nostrils and embraces feelings of wonderment. Nothing stirs the senses as much as the passing of the seasons; the living of Nature's year. It is so natural to love nature, for when you love nature, you naturally love self and are one with God." William Forde: August 25th, 2016.
