Practicing the presence

This week, make it a point to visit a park or a nearby place of natural beauty. While it may be cold and challenging, do your best. Take your journal with you—perhaps an art-pad, paints, and/or colored pencils. Do not bring any electronics! (Well, OK, you can bring a camera!)

During your time in this place of natural beauty, create your own art based on what you are seeing. Let it become an expression of praise to the Creator.


  • Prayers of thanksgiving and petition
  • Journaling or silent reflection
  • “The Lord’s Prayer”
