THE BEAUTY OF NATURE

September 1 is a few short hours away. The start of September means the start of school for us in Canada and that means back to work for me.It has been a good and busy summer and I am ready to get back into routines.


To start this new month I look back to a few more summertime beauties.
All of these pictures have been taken at The English Gardens.I present them to you without any further words,so enjoy.





Seasons change,but the goodness of our God remains the same.

Morden Corn and Apple Festival,Part 2


Corn and Apple Festival continued.

I will show some more parade entries.
As I said we are home to the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre ,Here is a replica of one of the fossils discovered in this area.

I didn't know that the Fintstones were still alive and active,but their car was driving down the parade route.

 So I now know what I need to look for when shopping for a motor home. It has to have a TV on the outside. How else could one survive this roughing it,called camping? LOL

The local Taekwondo group was out,handing out candies to the youngsters along the parade route. 


From motor homes with outside TVs to some the old vehicles,all are on display in the parade.


With all this activity,one must be fed. My church was cooking up some delicious apple ring fritters. All funds raised were going to the Pembina Valley Bible Camp,so it was only right that Todd,the director got the first serving.


This is a small look at the campers parked at one of the school yards in town. Yes,we do have a campground,but it is usually overfull,so a school ground is opened up for additional space.


My favourite ride to watch is the Merry Go Round. It is quieter and quite pretty. Of course I only watch.I will not be doing any riding,on any rides.


My favourite time of the festival is Sunday. The city has designated that all entertainment on the main stage is Gospel on that day.
We had a soloist,Aaron Ruston,who opened the day. Aaron sings a lot of Booth Brothers songs,but it doesn't matter which song he sings,he does a super job of it.This man has an amazing voice.
He was followed by an amazing speaker,Ron Pearce.Ron has been all over the world,sharing the Gospel and has so many interesting stories to share.I did not get a picture of him.


Another group was the Torchmen from Ontario ,Canada. These guys sing Southern Gospel style and do a great job. I had not heard them in person before,so it was a treat for me. There were a couple of other groups,but once again,I did not get pictures.

If you ever have the chance,come visit Morden during Festival time. We will treat you right,fill your tummy with good food,your heart with good music and preaching.
