A Little Slice of Heaven

If you’re like me, exercise is more like work than fun. Today I share a way you can enjoy walking – by focusing on nature and beauty. In the past few months I’ve created a new habit – taking a walk with our husky, Olaf, after our children get on the bus. Although most of the quarter is rented out, we have plenty of room to walk through our hay field, beside our garden area, and through a scenic woodland area. I’ve been thankful I’ve had my iPhone with me many days. Not for the phone, but for the handy camera.

I know the dandelion is not a popular flower, but I see beauty in the perfect oval and am amazed by the design that enables dandelions to go to seed and multiply.

The wild rose is Alberta’s provincial flower

I’m thankful the natural beauty around me – my little slice of Heaven.

What is beautiful to you? How do you share your joy with others?

    Thanks for sharing the beauty you find at home and on your daily walks. I admire what you can do with a camera. I found it interesting to read about how music, photography, and daily joys were part of your childhood. Although we all meet daily trials, it is good to appreciate our individual backgrounds and blessings.

  2. Ruth, Your photos are stunning!

    I, too, am grateful for my iPhone camera and love sharing the glimpses of heaven I capture with it. So many gifts of beauty everywhere.

    I enjoyed seeing your little slice of heaven today.
