Southwest Florida in the summertime is hot.  There’s no getting around the high dew point and humidity.  However it is through this heat and humidity that a spiritual stage is set.

Mornings are still and that quiet lingers into afternoon.  Water reflects nature like a mirror reflects a human’s face.  Beautiful.  Still.  Individual.

Later on, clouds build and storms scatter in fields, swamps and preserves disrupting the stillness with dark drama.  Activities of the day.

The rain fills the dry bowls of the preserve and renames them swamps.  The sun returns.  Water evaporates into clouds that linger with the sun until evening comes.  Sunset and the purple of dusk magnified in nature.

Nature fills my soul with the spirit.  God is present in our days through the perfect changes in nature.  Peace.  All is well.
