Why not write a poem, journal entry or meditation about what Earth Day means to you?
Posted in , Apr 20, 2015
Earth Day is Wednesday, April 22. It may be an easy day to take for granted, but because I love this day, I took the opportunity to reflect upon why God’s creation is so amazing in this poem, "God’s Green Earth":
The green of leaves
Nothing quiets my soul more than God’s green earth
Nothing brings me peace more than God’s green earth
Nothing makes me feel more connected
The green of trees
Everything reveals His handiwork on God’s green earth
Everything reflects His love on God’s green earth
Everything makes me truly joyful
God’s green earth.
This year for Earth Day, why not write your own poem, journal entry or meditation about what Earth Day means to you? Even if you’re not an experienced writer, you can do it.
1) Gather your writing tools--pen and paper, or your computer.
2) Find a quiet place.
3) Quiet your mind. I usually close my eyes, take a deep breath and wait for the words to flow.
4) Write what you feel. Just get the words down on paper first. Don’t worry about style or order yet.
5) Think about all your senses. What do you feel, smell, and hear when you’re in the midst of God’s wonderful creation?
6) Now, look over your work and make any changes. Refine and edit until it’s the way you like it.
Most important of all, when you’re done, be sure to share it with others. Don’t keep your light under a bushel! You will bless others when you share your feelings.
Oh, and if possible, do your writing outdoors. You’ll find inspiration all around you, on God’s green earth.
