My Neighbourhood…

G’day from Australia! Today we are going to stopsmell the roses…meaning we are going to take time out from the busyness of life!

To enjoy a time of stillness & refreshment in the beauty that surrounds us…

We begin….

As we walk… let me describe to you some exciting things in my garden that my husband has been cultivating…the Azalea is magnificent this year…

Our lemons are ripe & ready for harvest on our dwarf ‘lots of lemons’ tree & our strawberry plants are loaded with strawberries, harvest is sweet!

As we stroll down the road & turn the corner, a view of coastal bliss greets us…

Reaching the waterfront we observe the wind skimming across the surface of the water creating distinct smooth & wrinkled effects, steering the anchored boats in the same direction…

We observe the Pied Oyster catchers as they scour the rocks for oyster delicacies…with their striking colors…of black & white with bright orange legs & beaks…as we trudge through the sand…

We come to a timber seat, we sit….enjoying the Seabreeze upon our face, the warmth of the sun on our backs…the sound of the waves lapping the shore entwined with the melodious song of the native birds above our heads & as the tide recedes….

Our soul quitens, the tension ebbs from our souls & peace flows, we sense His Holy presence…we savour the moment…for He, the Spirit of God is with us…

We eventually amble back to enjoy a hot cup of  tea…as we sip our tea we focus on the following truth observed by the ancients…

“…since the creation of the world

His invisible attributes,

His eternal power and divine nature,

have been clearly seen,

being understood through that which has been created…” 

Romans 1:20 Refer

It was so lovely to have you drop by, I hope you enjoyed our walk around my neighbourhood & our time together dear friend…

Until next time…


You’re most welcome to join me in The Reading Nook

Or in Prayer

  1. Lovely! Sure wish I could be there as it is snowing again here. But this is the next best thing to turn my mind to warm and sunny summer days and beautiful gardens. Thanks for inviting me into your world for a few delightful minutes. God bless.

      1. I definitely do not like the cold and snow. January has been quite cold, but nothing like Northern Ontario where yesterday it was minus 37 C with a wind chill making it feel like minus 43. Glad I don’t live there.

      2. Goodness! I feel cold just thinking about it! I’m glad I don’t live there either.
        My body wouldn’t cope, with the chronic issues I have, as I feel 10 degrees colder than everyone else as it is & I need a blanket at night in Summer!


  2. Absolutely beautiful, Jennifer! I couldn’t help thinking that I wished winter in the Midwest of the U.S. included flowers, fresh fruit, and walks by the sea. Thanks for sharing this with us and for linking up at Counting My Blessings!
