Waters of Rest

After posting some abstract images that I very much enjoyed creating, it's time to return to some images of nature. There is something about the sight of lush greenery and a gentle, flowing river that really nourishes the soul. The following are some photos I took inside Kejimkujik National Park in Nova Scotia, Canada. I only spent a few hours hiking along the Mersey River, but the park has a lot more to explore. Perhaps another time.

These wild mushrooms look like some delicious Chinese bakery.

Idyllic river scenes - not sure the mushrooms are edible though!

I believe all of Psalms 23:1-3a - and when I've had the opportunity (less so recently) to sit by a river (or out in the countryside), I have contemplated on its truth and comfort. In my younger days, it used to thrill me to sit by running water and play my acoustic guitar and maybe even write a new finger-style solo. Rivers mean PEACE to me and this thought has be captured in Hymns too - like 'Peace like a River'.

When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul...

Kind regards,

Andrew

Andrew, your comments filled me with joy. I was thrilled to learn your perception of these images and the experiences you had and how similar they are to mine (minus the music-making parts since I don't have that kind of talent). May peace like a river attend your way, and may it be well with your soul...
