Blog Your Blessing Sunday #18
Go here if you would like to participate: Blue Panther
Although the temperature is still cold outside, we have had a brief pause in the rain so it has been good walking weather. That made me think of what a blessing it is to be able to walk on the abundance of trails that our city has provided for everyone. Besides good health habits, we get the privilege of seeing God's wonders up close.
These are all in our park downtown. There is also a cement plaque from Volkssporters walking group but my photo cut off a letter so I didn't post it today. I'll go back and get a new photo in case someone reads this post at a later date. . .
CLICK on the photo to read the message.
This is the bench in Esther Short Park where the message is engraved. It is along the sidewalk and in front of a water fountain play area that extends a long ways on one side of the park.
Our mayor is a walking/bicycling enthusiast and I am sure he and the city council submitted an entry for us to receive this award. I don't know because I was teaching in California that year.
