A short walk from home brings us to a place of beauty, nature and joy – the waterfront!!! A typical summer evening at the waterfront would vary depending on the day of the week and the weather. The scene dramatically changes from a quiet humdrum weekday to a vibrant, bustling-with-excitement, colourful weekend with families, adults, kids walking about and enjoying their time at the lake, some with food, fishing rods or a Tim’s coffee in their hands. The local Cafe band sings and plays music to the demands of the patrons. The eatery spills out onto the side walk and people stop by to take in the music. A group of bikers hang out together and barrel in and out of the main street with loud rut-tut exhaust sounds. The lake is dotted with jet skis, boats and paddle boaters. The pier is filled with people, some fish, some watch their children play in the water, young couples walk by hand in hand, some walk by in a determined finish-my-exercise kinda walk, older people sit on the benches and enjoy the sunshine and weather. A walk to the lake and back can overwhelm your memory with enough images, aromas and sounds to last a lifetime. Try walking…it always does a world of good to the body, soul and mind.
Genesis 2:1 - Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
With Spring comes varied sounds…the twitter, chirp, tweet, trill and songs of birds, among the busyness of life. Who does not love listening to the singing of cardinals and the chirping of robins! With Spring also comes the sound of motorbikes that have hibernated in garages all winter and are now speeding down highways and motorways. I have captured a fusion of these sounds below.
Matthew 6:26 - Look at the birds in the sky, they do not reap nor gather into the barns, and trust that the Father will provide.
