To me remains nor place, nor time;
My country is in every clime;
I can be calm and free from care
On any shore, since God is there.
After settling back into our non-routine routine life, I finally
found made some time to compile a little photo log of our journey over the past several weeks; or, one might call it, “really great excuses as to why I haven’t been blogging.” I think my husband’s seven-year old Kodak 612Z camera still does a pretty good job capturing and highlighting our days.
After Easter, we moved out of our cute little spot in Ottawa.
Then we stayed on the “other” side of the Ottawa River a while with friends:
and moved our “schtuff” into their basement…
Then, it was time to say “See you later” (not goodbye), to some friends…
As we headed out of town, some colourful tulips peaking through the snow caught our eye.
Then we drove south, and south, and east a bit…to enjoy an extended stay in Virginia Beach for my mom’s 80th birthday celebration, shared with our daughters and grandkids! These are just a few pics of all that were taken from our blessed time together:
After spending time with our blessings, it was time to meet the road again.
As Bilbo sang in The Hobbit,
Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.
So we return, for a bit, to our hollow in the hills, giving praise to the Lord for His lovingkindness, and seeking Him for whatever lies ahead.
While place we seek, or place we shun,
The soul finds happiness in none;
But with a God to guide our way,
“tis equal joy to go or stay.
Jeanne Marie Guyon, 1722
