DSCF2586Hello my friends, how are you today? Take a minute to think about it.  How are you? In spite of the circumstances, I wish you a very blessed day.  Can you believe it? We are in June! Happy first day of June! How should a new month be celebrated? Well, glad you ask! It should be a time of reflection; how are we doing in our walk with the Lord? Have we been walking in accordance with His Word? Is His Word at the center of our lives? Are we aware that true success in life relies on obeying the Word of God? Do we wish to be better, wiser mother/father, brother/sister, wife/husband, worker, and friend? Read and obey the Word of God! That is really the solution!  F73A1302-EF25-414F-A99E-71939FE3142ALately most of my time has been scheduled.  But yesterday, I went for a walk by myself and do you know what I found out? I absolutely loved it! It was so serene and peaceful.  It was exactly what my soul needed.   I said hello to strangers as we passed each other.  I stopped to admire the family of geese and goslings.DSCF2562  I walked across a bridge that looked like it should not hold my weight, but was very much stable.


I enjoyed the bird daring me to come get its insect (if only she knew I do not knowingly eat insects).CB873296-F707-4E09-8701-48AAC178B095 I listened to the rushing sounds of what used to be a vibrant and busy canal.  I touched the petals of what was thankfully not poison ivy (although I love plants, I know very little about them).


It was a pleasant walk; there was just one hidden agenda… take photographs.  A good agenda, because it forced me to slow down; to take the time see God’s handiwork.  I was reminded of God’s 19 1  I was reminded of His unfailing, unwavering, unconditional love for you and me.  I was reminded that creation itself speaks of God’s love.  Creation calls out and says there is Someone bigger, greater, mightier. ps 24 1 There is Someone more trustworthy and dependable. There is Someone more amazing and awesome. Creation points us to the Almighty God of the Universe. Does creation bring a soothing peace to your soul?

  1. I love to sit still or walk in nature, as long as there are no insects trying to crawl on me or bite/sting me. So, there are quite a few months of the year where I love to get out in nature! Waterfalls and cascades are among my favorite things to admire! Thanks for the short video! 🙂

      • Lol, sister! 😂😂
        I’m not sure what I would do if a deer or, say, a chipmunk came up to me. I suppose I’d take pictures of them. But what are the chances!? I did have a humming bird come up really close to me once when I was just sitting silently in the garden. That was pretty thrilling! I don’t think I had my camera with me, though.
        And yes, God’s creation is amazing!

  2. What a beautiful and refreshing walk you must have had. I was refreshed just looking through your photos and listening to the water in the video. I, too, love being outdoors and taking my phone/camera always helps me slow down as I look for things to photograph. Being out in creation always helps point me to God and want to join in worshiping Him. Blessings to you! Thanks for linking up with us at the #LMMLinkup. I am choosing your post as my favorite of the week and will be featured on my blog tomorrow at the #LMMLinkup. Thank you for taking us on this peaceful walk pointing us to our awesome God through His handiwork. Thanks also for your emphasis on living by His Word.

  4. Great pictures. Enjoyed the virtual walk.
    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

  5. What a sweet post! Felt like I was right there on your walk with you!! Thank you! God is amazing and His creation is undeniable…I love how the NLT version of Romans 1:20 puts it, “For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God”.

  8. I love going for walks/hikes and taking pictures! It is one of my (and my husband’s!) favorite things to do. It definitely helps me to slow down and appreciate the beauty of God’s creation all around us.

    • AMEN!!!! How can we miss His absolute love and mercy for His precious children? Yet sometimes, I get so busy that I have to deliberately set aside the time to enjoy His creation 😦 I will do better
