There has been lots of stress in my life recently. Then this morning, I received a really nice letter from my sister-in-law - the one that was with my brother this past weekend taking the POA issues for our dad.
Then later, after starting up a pot of leek & veggie soup (I hope it turns out okay - I snuck some Vegemite into it for flavour and nutrition.), I read some more email. One I got from an long-time older family friend. He and his wife and kids have sheltered various ones of my family over the years, first after a fire at my grandparents home, later as a "in-between nest" for us kids going to the nearby college, and as a place for my mom after she and my dad divorced. Now retired, he sends us all kinds of stuff from off the Internet. Lots of them are interesting-ish "kinda sorta", maybe more appealing to guys trying to relive their youth.
But today he sent this one awesome video and I'm sharing it with you all here. It's just this beautiful restful space of meditative beauty. That and I love the sound track. And it's accessible to the deaf. For those of you who are low-vision, ahhh my heart aches to try to describe the beauty of the nature created by our Creator... Elks, Bald Eagles, bears, rainbows, swans, waxing moons, misty lakes, majestic snow-capped mountains, and more. I pray you have a visual interpreter near you as you listen to the video.
Here is the email:
