When we’re busy or tense, stressed or preocuppied, we might ignore the simple ways that we can reconnect, even for a moment, with God’s creation and the miracle that is our bodies. We might take for granted that our hearts beat, our muscles stretch and contract, and our lungs provide us with the air we need to function. But if we drag ourselves away from the pressing tasks that devour our attention, if we allow a few moments of fresh, cleansing air, we can better relax, regroup, and be set to face the rest of our day, breathing a sigh of blessed relief when our work is done and we can truly relax.

Joy and peace,
