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?

Fleeting Glimpses of Beauty

The other day I received a photography tip that suggested carrying a spray bottle around to enhance pictures of flowers etc. This morning as I walked my children to the bus, I was delighted to see that God decorated my yard with his own spritz bottle – a heavy dew, combined with brilliant sunshine. After my children were on their way to school, I enjoyed fleeting glimpses of beauty in my yard. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.
