Some of Selma’s writing’s:
God whispers to me through the leaves rustling by the wind
I see his power and might in the white caps on the lake
I feel peace and serenity when the sun shines on me and warms me up
The clouds make me feel comforted like God is putting a blanket around me
The green of the trees and the blue of the skies makes me feel alive like God is sending the blood of life into my very being
The songs of the birds was the most beautiful alarm clock to wake up to – a gentle reminder from God that we need to listen and be awake to the world around us
