“…these are a few of my favorite things…”
We are now in limbo. The wedding is over (the reason we came to Canada for the summer…son’s wedding). Fall is around the corner and with it will come my interview in Montreal for my Green Card (a necessary process so I can come and go into the United States without all that border hassle). After that we will visit some of Tim’s family in New York and as Traveling Mercies Ministries (Missionaries, sent out, but really just following the guiding of the Holy Spirit and trying not to lay down our own agenda), we’ll see where He leads us.
Meanwhile, the dreamer in me has been thinking about all that moves me…I mean the stuff that matters and still has the power to stir the hope, love, innocence, awe, and the beauty within me. When all of the non essentials and the non thrilling have moved out of the way, I find that time and time again, I am left only with the simple things in life …mostly the things that have come from the hand of God Himself. And the older I get, the more drawn I am to them as though they were a big slice of God Himself, …and so they are! Here is where I see God my Maker up close and personal. Here is where I can let the troubles of the world slip away. Here is where I remember who I am in Him. Is it just me? Surely others must find God in the simple and beautiful as well…??
As I created this slide show (although it is not all in Canada) I almost feel as though I’ve come home to the Canadian Rockies again…sigh…..
So, today, I share with you a little piece of all my heart holds dear (the only thing missing here is music and pictures of family).
I’m nutty about RIVERS…one day I plan to have 2 chairs beside one that we call “home.”
I have a pleasant memory of when I was very young, falling asleep on Mamma’s blanket, while she read, and we rested beneath poplar trees beside the river. It meant the world to me then. It means the world to me now.
“His voice was like the sound of many waters…..” Revelation 1:15 (Oh, yes it is!)
Enjoy the slides…(pictures gathered online and not my own). Hope they give you the lift they give me!
