Grounding . . . a new science?

   

 The air’s cool, the grass is still damp, and no this is not another ramble about the wonderful season of fall, although it could be. No, it’s Saturday morning and the neighborhood still sleeps. No sounds of lawn mowers or people hurrying to work. Just cool, quiet, peace as I sip my hot coffee and do my grounding.

Grounding is the simple act of walking barefoot or sitting with your hands on the ground. Modern research shows real health benefits of practicing this regularly. ( regularly means more than twice a month … 🙂 ) Not to mention how good it feels.

My mother knew nothing about grounding, but she knew she had a houseful of kids to keep shoes on. We went barefoot to save the leather for school and when we visited the grandparents. Life was good! 🙂 Growing up I think I went entire summers without shoes on my feet—Mother didn’t know she was grounding us!

But, if you think about it, the God of heaven created the earth first, then his people. Scripture says He created us from dust, the earth. Makes sense to me that my body and the earth are integrated—kinda like my children and me. And yes, we have a need to stay in touch, hmmm, yeah, grounded.

Hope you had a wonderful Saturday! Until next time, keep God in your plans. You’ll sleep better! 🙂 🙂 🙂
