I am going to miss this-my Hespeler. Jake and I have only ever lived in this area of Cambridge since we started out at university 8 years ago, respectively. Walking the trails, discovering new ones, and spotting turtles in the Speed River became part of our relationship.
Now that we're moving, I don't know what I will do without this beautiful tranquility. It's hard to imagine any other place on earth that feels as wondrously God-touched as this-a piece of heaven right in the midst of the city. I have often come to this particular trail to walk/run off stress, to relax with Jake on a sunny afternoon, and to feel the closeness of my Creator.
So I decided to snap some pictures on my last run, as the cold sapped all the moisture from my skin and the sun warmed my face.
|This is our version of 'swan' lake...do you see them?|
|As I wrapped up my run, I would have enjoyed shedding some tears to commiserate with my emotions, but my apathetic pregnancy hormones won't let me cry on command-just at the most inopportune moment ever.|
I am looking forward to finding the peaceful places to walk and run near our new place, and, since God is faithful in the small things, I have no doubt that He will provide!
