A few days ago after I taught my little Spanish class, I decided to go for a walk at the park instead of going home. The temperature was warm enough that I only wore a quilted vest instead of a coat! Today we are supposed to get ice, so I’m happy to have been able to enjoy the warm sunshine while it lasted.
As I walked around the lake, I reached the place where the fountain is easiest to hear. It was also the perfect time of day to see rainbows as the sun shone through all the water droplets.
Of course, the ducks and geese seemed to be enjoying the day as well.
I love the way the sky, clouds, and trees reflect off the surface of the lake!
And I love to walk up close to this line of pine trees and smell that fresh pine scent! I also love that they keep their green color even when so many other things turn brown.
Did you ever notice how thankfulness warms the soul? Even in the winter of the soul, thankfulness makes the sun come out and cast reflections of the heavenly in our hearts!
Today I’m thankful for warm sunshiny days and warm walks in the park in the middle of the winter!
What about you? Do you like to go for walks in nature? Do you enjoy being by waterways on warm days and seeing the reflections on the surface of the water? What wildlife do you get to enjoy where you live?
