Day: January 3, 2017

walk to beach 2017

Another dark day in Michigan but it’s sunny inside

Now begins the dark days of winter, at least where I live here in Michigan. Because I’m like a block from the lake, our weather patterns are pretty screwing.

But Sunday, it was sunny, and warm (40, that’s warm here) so my husband and I walked in our state park. It’s situated on Lake Michigan and there are many paths to the beach. There isn’t enough snow now to impede our progress, or should I say mine? I’m the one with the feet and back problems.

But I was thrilled because I was able to walkover an hour. Here are some pictures of our beautiful lakeshore.

Lake Michigan. I am fortunate to live so close.

This is on the way back. Do you notice something? Our footprints are gone. A good reminder to leave footprints for my loved ones that will forever remain.

footprints-in-the-sand-3(Believe it or not, there are many versions of this poem. Who knew? I certainly didn’t.  Another author I came across fairly consistently was Leona Davis, so I include her name here just in case.)

And this is my beach “selfie”. Is that God shining on me?

What a great way to start the New Year. And now what a great memory to look back on when the days are “dark”.

Do I need to explain the obvious connection between the above statement and life in general?

Make good memories, my friends. They will be your strength for the future.

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
