I took my little sister the other day to go swinging. Now mind you she is 15 years young. I wouldn’t think a 15 year old would randomly want to go swinging and with such passion to do so. At first I kind of did not want to go. However I forced myself up from a nap and went. She kept saying “I can’t wait to swing, because I get butterflies in my tummy.” In my head I was like good for you. As soon as we arrived she ran straight to the swings with such great joy. Of course I took my time walking to the swings but to my surprise it wasn’t because I didn’t want to be there it was the fact it felt good to be there, with the slight breeze in the air and the sun shinny down on me, it felt peaceful. And oh did it feel good to swing again. As I swung I closed my eyes and that is when I felt free. Free from busyness, free from the frustration in my life, free from being an adult. I felt like a kid again. It was great. Yeah it was only for a little bit but it was a little bit that made me feel freedom. I believe everyone needs to have these kind of times in there life, where they can feel free from it all, where they can feel like a kid again. Kids do have it great, no responsibility, no worrying about gossip, money, jobs, etc…. Don’t get me wrong I enjoying being an adult but at times I love to feel the freedom of a kid.

I love being outdoors for that very reason, when the sun is shining and the wind is gently blowing. You can get so caught up in how perfect and lovely nature-God's creation is, I've always felt peaceful at moments like that.
