Our amazing nature!...

"We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
...we borrow it from our Children"
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
 
Open the door, get outside and start walking! Nature is so beautiful!
It surrounds us every day, where ever we go. But it is so easy to take it for granted, not to notice what is around us. How often do you lift your eyes up and look at the sky and notice how beautiful it is?
And it is beautiful, always, no matter what, it is always different, and it can be hard to take your eyes off it, once you've noticed it!

It's quite remarkable, or should I say a bit embarrassing, we have lived in our town for nearly a year now, and only last weekend we have discovered a new (for us) amazingly beautiful walk way.
It goes down the local river, and leads towards park land.
The park looks almost wild, filled with astonishing breath taking sounds, birds, animals, which are freely swimming in the water or flying in the sky. Ducks and geese come up to you, in hopes do get a bit of bread, turtles poking their heads from the muddy water of the river. Horses eating the fresh grass further in the field, wild turkeys running by right near you. And all of this is happening so not far away from where we live! Just half an hour walk, and you are in the native wild bush land of Australia!
Amazing!

We don't always notice it, but it is here! God's hand created our Earth, and God is calling for us, no matter where we are and what we are doing. And it is not hard to hear him, you just need to listen.
Get outdoors in the nature, take a deep breath of fresh air and look around.....

  2. Приедешь к нам в гости в следующий раз, сходим вместе с тобой туда! Мне почему-то Подмосковье напомнила эта прогулка, даже грустно стало.

  3. Hi Katerina,
    Wow, you are so fortunate to live close to such an oasis! What an amazing array of animals to find in the one spot. It's easy in our modern way of life to forget to just 'be' with nature, but it's so good for our mental health.
    Australia is so beautiful. I'm moving back there in January and am looking forward to it!

  4. Hi Brigid!
    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! Yes, well we don't always appretiate what we've got, that's why I like to take camera with me. When you "hunt" for nice shots you can notice heaps more interesting moments which happen right next to us every day. Nature is our biggest friend, it brings us closer to God!
    So you are from Australia or you lived here for some time before?

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
