This Is My Father's World

I invite you to join me as I wander around at Lake Minniwasta,back in the middle of April.
It's a pleasant spring day in Manitoba,cool enough for a light jacket,but still great to be outside after a long winter.


As you can quickly see,the trees are still leafless,but the ice is all gone from the lake.


I like being here before the folks are out with their motor boats.I love the peace and quiet I can experience at the lake during those times.


This picture is disturbing to me.You see,normally the water should be up to or past these boulders.The water level is very low and that is not a good way to start the year.


Even without the leaves on the trees and the green of the grass,there is still a measure of beauty at the lake.


A seed plume from last year adds some interest to the scene.

Closing Thought:
We believe that this is Your world, Lord. We marvel at You and Your creativity when we look at the sky and the world around us. You, and what You have done, are amazing! We stand in awe of You.

  5. I personally think that early morning is the perfect time to enjoy our Father's beautiful world -- He seems closer in the peace and quiet. Your photos are beautiful, but I hope you get some rain in the days ahead.

  7. the lake view is beautiful and so is the sky. i love the leafless trees to.. looks like you are in a drought up there. i saw on the news that is part of why they had that horrible big fire... everything is so dry... prayers for the drought to break.. and i agree, lake before the boats.

  13. I looked at your first photo and thought the water was actually moving. I realized it wasn't but for just that second, it was. Beauty beyond our imaginations....God uses a mighty brush.

  14. Having a drought is NO FUN... We don't realize how much we ALL need and count on water, do we? I read about fires in Canada already... Scary!!!!

    BUT--your photos are awesome. When we walk early in the mornings, I feel God's presence all around... It's such a special, peaceful time of day... God Bless You, my Friend.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  16. The photos are lovely. I especially like the first one. It's surprising to see the water so low since it looked like you got a lot of snow through the winter. I hope the Lord blesses and the lake rebounds.

  19. We've been in a drought zone here, too, but I think the recent rains have ended it. We have had lots of rain and I hope your area gets some soon to fill up the lakes there. Your closing thoughts are similar to mine when I gaze upon the beauty of God's creation. And I always give thanks for eyes to see it with. Take care, Ruth, and enjoy the weekend!

  20. Yes it is always a concern when water levels are down going into summer. Here's hoping they get the rain needed to fill their reservoirs.
