I was enjoying the lovely weather, strolling along Lake Shore in Oakville the other weekend, when we passed by a church that had such lovely gardens we decided to venture in and explore.
I often notice churches that have beautiful flower gardens, but they’re always empty, as if passerby rarely take the time to appreciate and enjoy the peaceful environment that’s been created.
We stayed and enjoyed the stunning surroundings for a while before continuing on.
I was excited to take some great photos to share with you all.
I love how photos create the opportunity to relive memories and feelings on a much deeper level than without. A single photo can be enough to bring back a rush of memory and emotion. These photos bring back feelings of joy, peacefulness, and contentment, and the wonderful person I enjoyed strolling through the gardens with.
May we all remember to take some time now and then to stop and become aware of the beauty that surrounds us.
May we all allow ourselves the time to pause, appreciate, and experience that peace and beauty; a brief meditation on nature in the midst of our typical busy days.
