I know my need to consistently feed my "spirit". Therefore, I carve out time to be with the Lord daily and His Word.
I have learned through my aging process that I also need to feed my "physical" body, both with good nutrition and exercise.
The area I tend to neglect is "feeding my soul". I can tell when I need to "feed my soul" and if I stop to give in, my whole countenance can change. There are times when that "feeding" comes through creating, singing, reading, or visiting the arts. The "feeding" that brings me back to my roots was what I did on Sunday. I grabbed my tennis shoes and headed out the door for the sites and smells of the country.
A farm just miles down from our neighborhood. Even with all of Texas's growth we still have places that remind us of the past. The cement jungle hasn't taken everything away...yet!
The cattle guard continues to keep in whatever cattle might still roam on this downsized farm...the abandoned tractor and farm equipment tells the story of the glory days of the past.
These train tracks are still used today, yet not to the extent of days gone by.
Each site just reminded me that others have passed this way also. Life continues to move forward, and yet, remembrances of the past, while enjoying the sights and smells of nature, just "feeds my soul."
How do you feed your soul?
