|On of the many restful areas in our state park.|
Read Psalm 24 1-10
On one of our son’s last days being with us, we took a ride. We visited the state park just outside.
Our son took his fancy camera with him. I carry my digital one in my purse. We saw the brilliant green of summer. This park is purported to be the smallest park in our state park system. I had forgotten how beautiful this place is.
I snapped a few pictures of picnic areas He snapped pictures of what he wanted. Several of these areas have shelter houses. One area has a large shelter and a playground near to a swimming pool.
My favorite spot in the entire park is a section of the road that turns to the left and enters a shaded area. The lanes divide and a wooden fence sits in the small median. The trees on either side of this rustic boulevard interweave their branches overhead to give you the feeling of being in a cathedral.
We started towards the campground and I saw some close friends who had been camping;Hubby pulled besides them and we said, “Hi.” We then went down to the river where we launched our canoe many years ago. There was a patch of flowers we both tried to get a shot of them.
|If you look closely you will see the yellow wildflowers.|
Our excursion through the state park reminded me of God’s beauty that He places in our lives that we never really appreciate. I intend to be more mindful of what He has given us.
