Springtime at Radnor Lake

I've written before about how Radnor Lake is one of my favorite places on earth and Springtime at Radnor does not disappoint. I took advantage of a perfect Spring afternoon to go for a walk there this week. I didn't bring my camera, but thankfully, my phone took some decent pictures.

This one was actually taken with my regular camera on a quick photo detour to Radnor on Monday morning.
Today in my devotional book the writer, speaking from Jesus' voice, said:
"Heaven is both present and future. As you walk along your life-path holding My hand, you are already in touch with the essence of heaven:  nearness to Me. You can also find many hints of heaven along your pathway, because the earth is radiantly alive with My Presence." (Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, p. 109)

I immediately thought of my walk at Radnor and how it feels like a glimpse of heaven when I go there. The bright green new growth that was evident all throughout the woods. The late-afternoon sunlight coming through the trees. The pretty dogwoods blooming in their natural habitat. The shimmering lake and the babbling streams. By the time I left, I had praise songs and old hymns going through my head because I couldn't hold back the urge to give glory and praise and thanks to the Creator God!
