The Joy of Love and a Little Patience
Updated: May 17, 2021
We had a wonderful four-day draw series. Words along the path reflected our themes for each day. Christine always writes meaningful phrases to contemplate as you near the labyrinth's exit. If you walked with us this weekend you might have seen, "Walk with the power of peace, the light of truth, and the joy of love," or "Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience."
Denny was over the moon to bring back his beloved spiral path turns in the labyrinths on Friday. You might be able to find numerous spirals in three of the full labyrinth photos.
The weather challenged our team to create paths in wet and windy conditions. Patience and a sense of purpose were required more than once. The rewards were numerous. Even in heavy mist and strong wind, our volunteer groomers showed up with broad smiles on their faces and positive attitudes to rake the sand. Despite the rather unfavorable conditions, many groomers joined us for several days in a row. We can't thank all of you enough for your perseverance, laughter, and positive energy. We always get a kick out of groomers raking themselves into their own circles.
I wanted to give a quick shout-out to one of our local photographers, Gleneda Borton, for sending me a photo of three black oystercatchers. I updated the original photo on the last blog with Gleneda's. It is a more accurate photo than the original one. Thanks for keeping me in line Gleneda.
Our next draw series is May 28th-31st, 2021. We will be back to share love, show love, and be love. In the interim, we leave you with these words, "Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most."
