One afternoon this week we enjoyed a pleasant stroll along a greenway near our home. Part of this trail goes through land upon which a railroad right-of-way once ran, including an old railroad bridge. Here are a few shots of the rural scenery that were taken along the way.
“Somewhere between the start of the trail and the end is the mystery why we choose to walk.” ~Unknown
“Without dark clouds in our lives, we would never know the joy of sunshine. We can become callous and unteachable if we do not learn from pain. ~Billy Graham
“The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be?–it is the same the angels breathe.” ~Mark Twain
These pictures were taken on the morning of January 2, 2018 as the sun was rising and the full moon was setting in the western sky.
“When one starts thinking of the full moon as a common sight that will come again to one’s eyes ad-infinitum, the value of life is diminished and life goes by uncherished.” ~Roman Payne
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis
“The beauty of the sunbeam lies partly in the fact that God does not keep it; he gives it away to us all.” ~David Swing
The moon, like a flower
In heaven’s high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.
