Does life just get to be a bit much at times?
I love how being out in nature seems to comfort and relax me.
With lots of change happening in our home lately.
My thoughtful husband took us for a drive to enjoy some of our
favourite places in nature.
It was a windy day by the lake and the waves were beautiful!
The sound of them breaking on the shore was
so restful and I could have stayed there for hours.
Just up the road from the lake is a river and
next to that is this cool old cabin.
Not lived in for a long time and falling down.
It has the call to come explore it.
The roof is all fallen in, but you can open the door and peek inside.
I love how the logs are all nestled together and chinked.
When I was a young girl, I lived in a log home my
father had built.
I remember every fall helping to chink between the logs.
I love how the colours change
in the weathering process.
The river was fast running, but the boys worked together to fix up a little
"bathtub" space that someone else had made.
They didn't last in the water long as it
was oh so cold!
We also went for a walk along the road and the kids did
some rock hunting.
They had to be very selective with
what they brought home.
I know that the Lord has created beauty
everywhere on the earth....but
this is my favourite kind of
place that I've ever been to.
Most of all the best place to find rest is
in the Lord Jesus Christ himself.
As we have been studying the Bible
it helps bring all things into the right perspective.
An eternal one.
The gardening that we've been doing
has also been so nice.
Things are starting to grow nicely
inside and out.
Outside the carrots, peas, beans, beets, greens, and potatoes
are all coming up nicely.
Inside the tomatoes, squash and some flowers and herbs are
doing well to.
I ate the very first tomato this week and oh it was so delicious!
We've been also taking plants in and out to the deck
to harden them off.
It's so windy most of the time that they get a bit bedraggled,
then seem to recuperate over night in the house.
There are now boxes all over the house either full or waiting to be filled.
I know we're a bit early...but before we know it
it will be time to move them.
I am trying to pace myself so that it doesn't become overwhelming
physically or emotionally.
Everything will happen...all in good time.
I pray that you are doing well and that
if things get to feeling overwhelming....
perhaps some time with the Lord in nature will
help bring things back to a place
