Fall in Canada…

I will let these pictures speak for themselves…you be the judge of the beauty of Fall!


Isaiah 40:8 - The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.





The world right now…

With the recent news and spate of events, I have begun to wonder when will we have some normalcy to our lives. Has mankind lost its favour in God’s eyes? I often think about this when I lie awake some nights wondering if there will ever be an end to this madness. For those of us who have parents, families, spouses, children and loved ones in other parts of the world, that we can’t travel to see, can’t hug or visit with – I know the feeling can bring on sadness, helplessness and sometimes distraught. But the comforting thought is that our loving Father is beside all of us every step of the way. He has us in the palm of his hands. He knows our every thought and will be there with us all until the end. I said a prayer for all of you today.

Summer garden containers…

These photos of garden containers were taken in summer when parks and residents and patios vie to put out well decorated and inviting outdoor garden containers. My favourite are those that have a mix of colours and textures, heights and assortment of plants, with some trailing plants that create a whimsical look. The containers themselves can enhance the whole theme of the arrangement, creating a modern, rustic or minimalist look.


Isaiah 68:4 - But now, O Lord, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.





Canadian Sunsets…

The CN Tower

There is nothing more mesmerizing and spectacular than a Canadian sunset with its array of colours that range from cool blues to soothing yellows to warm golden to bright fiery orange hues, transforming the skies into a canvas that will forever remain imprinted in your memories. The after glow is by far my favourite part of a sunset, casting shadows while the sun slowly slips away. You won’t be disappointed with the magnificent show a Canadian sunset puts on, I promise. It is in these mesmerizing moments you marvel in the creator.







Psalm 19:1 - The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Wild Mushrooms…

While on a trail to Hatchery Falls in scenic Muskoka, I came across the most beautiful mushrooms that took me back to my childhood, fairy tales, elves and toadstools. I am convinced that whoever wrote these tales visited such places. I love the smell of damp earth, the springy feel as you walk on trails formed by years of fallen bark and paths that feel almost cork-like, the mossy expanses on the barks of trees, the sounds of the leaves rustling in the quietness of the woods and the coolness of a break-out-sweat that follows after a long walk. The best environment for growth of these mushrooms are the damp and moist undergrowth. However, don’t be fooled by their beautiful colours, apparently some of them are poisonous.
