Who is visiting?
In your yard or your home?
I find that in these times when social distancing
has become the norm,
we are missing visits.
We have just moved to a new home and
we are starting to notice more and more who
We have lots and lots of squirrels,
but they are becoming more familiar and are getting names.
There is this one that loves to come to the tree
outside the kitchen window.
He's not so fearful of us anymore and will
sometimes stop for a little visit and
chatter with us.
We call him Fatso...because he's so big.
He's getting ready for winter and eating lots and lots.
He likes the "feeder" we have out, and then we
discovered his stash of drying mushrooms and cones as well.
He will be well provided for during the winter.
We have birds that come to visit..and
the chickadees are super friendly to.
We saw a swam out on the lake today for the first time here.
So graceful and serene amongst the raindrops.
As things open up more it is nice to start having people visitors again.
There is a special connection that is made when you
can visit in person...even if there is no contact.
But hugs...you have to admit hugs are so amazing
when you've not had one in awhile!
Even with this pandemic we need to not loose that
special touch of caring.
This past week our family has been able to see more
people and it's so refreshing!
I got to hold my friend's grand daughter for the first time
and she's 4 months old already.
What a treasure!
Got to see a dear friend who has not been having
any visitors due to the pandemic for months.
Got to have a dear friend in my home again.
Such special times.
The community centre is opening up again.
There was a biking activity held and the boys could spend some
time with their friends again.
The girls went for a bike ride though the trials around there.
I stayed and worked in the community garden..and enjoyed
some nice conversations with others who dropped in.
Then my youngest three had participated in something called
Walk to Tuk.
It was a virtual walk where teams combined walking/ exercising time
to make their way from Ft. Providence to Tuktoyaktuk
Northwest Territories, Canada.
There was a delay in them receiving their t-shirt prizes.
This week they got them and then went for a walk with
some of those that had also participated.
It was really nice.
All of this has brought to heart
that we are all in need of
Also knowing that the Lord
visits with us when we open up His word and
spend time with Him.
What a comfort and encouragement He is!
We need to make sure that those that are lonely have
some kind of visits.
On the phone or in person.
Taking time to share each other's lives with each other.
I believe that is what the Lord would have us do.
Love and Prayers,
