Two things happened recently, one good, and the other… also ultimately good.
The first is that the winter weather finally left, and it’s spring! That is definitely a good thing.
The second is that I was recently laid off from my teaching job. It felt bad at first. But if you believe as I do that God makes all things work together for good for those who love Him, it will turn out for the better. It will be exciting to see how things go!
Anyway, it certainly has its advantages in the short term:
The combination of these two things has brought about a wonderful change to my schedule. Now that I don’t have to rush around weekday mornings to prepare for–and drive to–work, I can go on early morning walks to the park!
Ahhh. When the sky is clear, I love to grab my camera, and walk a block to the urban park near my home, Fish Creek Park. It is referred to as one of the largest urban parks in all of Canada, and here it is considered one of the BEST.
First, let me share with you some of the sweet messages of encouragement some very talented artists have created and shared since mid-March. These adorn one of the paths I take when I want the best chance of seeing wild animals.
Notice that not all of these have written messages, word messages. Some are merely pictures. Yet those still convey a message, don’t they?
And I think we’d agree that all give a message of hope and happiness, a warm feeling that yes, “every little thing gonna be alright”.
I hope these made you feel that way, too!
Next, let me share with you a few of the other joys of the morning walks from the past few weeks, mostly birds. More good vibes!
It is my sincere hope that all of you are well and safe, and that you were able to take a few deep breaths of peace, joy and nature from these photos and messages. God bless!
