There are some who never take the time to connect with nature and there are some that are obsessed with nature. Some believe humans are different and not a part of nature. They believe people are only here to destroy nature.
I believe we are a part of nature as surely as any other plants/animals are. Some of my beliefs are not popular today. God provides for humans just as he provides for other animals. If He provides rabbits for a wolf to eat, then so He provides plants and animals for a person to use.
This is a picture of trucks, including my husband’s truck waiting to load/unload in a man-made mine. Some might see destruction.. I see the beauty as the sun reflects on man-made ridges. I see man utilizing the offerings God provides.
When or if we believe that we can more easily connect with nature. One of the best methods I use for relieving stress is to wander around in nature. A flower growing from a crack in the concrete can give me a feeling of connection.
These are pictures of Deerfoot Trail and other roads when the Bow River showed it’s might in Calgary. Respect it – or don’t. In a short time the water will recede.
Even in a city, nature can be a part of your life. You can work with nature or feel you can conquer it.
