What do you do to Renew?

Saturday afternoon was spent chopping wood, running in the mud, building a raging bonfire, and exploring the woods at our friends’ property.  Ron and Lou Vandergriend own this little piece of land on a lake with only one other house on it.  They are kind enough to let us come and play every now and then.

We need these times as a family sometimes…away from everyone and everything.  It was a very peaceful and renewing afternoon.  Simply being outside in nature renews me and connects me with my Creator.

How about you?  What do you do to renew your soul?
