leaves fall around us
in the autumn of our lives
we’re still together
I don’t know what kind of bird this funny little fellow is, but he was hopping around like a kangaroo. My husband and I couldn’t stop staring at him because he was comical, and it sure was challenging to get a picture of this hyperactive creature.
My husband also brought a camera along on this walk. Usually he just observes the surroundings, but since fall is his favorite season, he was motivated to snap a few shots too.
We enjoy getting out and sharing nature together. It’s what we’ve done since our dating days; I suspect one of the reasons we’ve stayed married for over thirty-three years is because we’ve kept going on our hikes.
Love never fails…
1 Corinthians 13:8 NIV
I recently blogged about the importance of saying yes to spending time with your loved ones. It’s now been posted as a podcast. If you’d like to listen in on my six minute talk, you can click on the link at the end of this post. Each Tuesday HopeStreamRadio will post a new podcast of mine on my Walking with Hope page on their site. They’ve been kind and patient with me as I learn the ropes.
How do you stay connected with your loved ones? I’m especially nosy-to-know about ways that don’t impact the family budget. Feel free to share your ideas. Maybe someone (including me) needs some fresh ones.

My husband, Ian, delights to take sneak shots of me. But at least you can see what I really look like when I’m enjoying nature photography. 🙂
Here’s the link to my latest podcast that opens in a new window:

Lovely Post…looks like a Beautiful spot 🙂
Thank you, Morgan. Yes, it’s lovely and serene this time of year.
Wonderful message about my favorite topic….love!
Thank you, Bill. Yes, “Love is the greatest of these.” 🙂
Congrats on your new podcast gig, Wendy. You must be thrilled! 🙂
Thank you, dear Jennifer, I really am. I hope your home was safe during the recent storm; I thought of you as they talked about it on CBC radio. 🙂
Not to worry. We had no damage beyond a leaky window, and I don’t think anyone in Newtown suffered any effects. The TCH in Terra Nova Park had to be repaired, but now that it’s done we can go into St. John’s this weekend as planned. Some poor folks in other areas were not so lucky.
Glad to hear your home is in good shape. Your place is heavenly.
Wendy: It’s a Dipper. You were lucky to get so close. Nice Photo.
Thank you, Richard. I’ve never seen a Dipper before. The name sure suits it. It dipped its beak in the water and then its whole body. Happy looking bird—that’s for sure.
I am enjoying your podcasts. I think it is great that you are doing them. I appreciate your beautiful pictures that go along with your messages. As I was listening to your podcast I was glad to know that people who are either blind or have low vision can have access to your inspired words.
I made a typo. I meant to say, “I appreciate your beautiful pictures that go along with your messages in your blog.”
I have been making so many typos lately. Sorry about that. <3
Your comment made perfect sense to me. I laughed at my recent typo on Twitter; I wrote “Hot bottom” instead of “Hit bottom”. I had to delete that in a hurry since my brand is not “hot”. 🙂
Thank you, dear Theresa. I love the thought of offering something for the visually impaired to listen to. One of my grandparents went legally blind near the end of his life. <3
Thank you Wendy…for this lovely post, and I really enjoyed your podcast – sweet, encouraging words, and your sweet voice! Thanks again. God Bless
Thank you, dear Janette, for stopping by here and at HopeStreamRadio. <3 And thank you for your encouraging words too. 🙂 Blessings .
Beautiful photo and poem! I loved the podcast and look forward to more! Keep it up:)
Thank you so much, dear Patty, for listening to the podcast. 🙂 They’ll usually run 5 to 7 mins at the most.
Another lovely podcast. Evening walks were a favourite family activity when I was growing up.
Thank you, Gallivanta. Evening walks are the healthiest thing ( in so many ways) one could do after dinner. 🙂
Thank you Wendy! I love that you still get to go on walks together. That is so special and connecting! My cousin’s grown girls come over and work on little projects with her help. She has a way of making boards with images and words on them. Fun! God bless you!
Debbie, I like the idea of working on art projects together. My daughter and I encourage each other’s artwork too. A family that crafts together lasts together. 🙂
Thanks for your encouraging words of hope, Wendy! I hope we are able to meet in person someday, but the next best thing is to hear your voice 😀
Ruth, I can’t wait to meet you and the rest of the InScribe family in person. Please pray that the way would be made clear for me to attend next year’s conference. <3
I’ve been spending a lot of time with family, especially my 2 year old grandson. I’m exhausted when he leaves, but so thankful to have had the time to spend with him. We all get together for Sunday early dinner where everyone pitches in and makes a meal. It’s the best day of the week!
Susan, that sounds absolutely wonderful and cozy. Your grandson will treasure these times with you forever.
I listened to the podcast: a legacy of love…. That is so beautiful, dear Wendy!!!!.
Wishing all the very best. Aquileana 😀
Thank you so much for taking the time, dear Aquileana. 🙂
