Mostly for Hannah

One morning in Fall- when the Harvest moon was full in the sky

Indian summer was at its best

And the colours were superb

Grandma, and Mommy, and Hannah, and Naomi went to the Calgary Zoo.  And they “did” the Zoo as the Zoo should be done:  With children, and a zoo pass, and a leisurely agenda to see and to savour and to go home when enough was sufficient.

They arrived at the Swift foxes’ enclosure just as a keeper was putting down food.

Mommy said, “If something is happening with the animals at the zoo you should stay and see, because often it is not.”

They stood and watched until  all the cached food was found.

So many delights.

Owls perched obligingly, a bear got up and moved.

They discovered a small amphitheatre.

Seats are for climbing.

Up and up.

Stairs are for coming down.

Grand-daughters are for photographing.

Pelicans are for swimming.

Sisters are for loving.

Ice-cream cones are to enjoy.

The day could not have been nicer.

And when they had done enough they went home.

Delight over you with Love

This phrase from Zephaniah was running through my mind this morning after viewing some pictures of my daughter with her youngest.

” The Lord your God is with you,

he is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

he will quiet you with his love,

he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

Taking on the world is apparently serious business.

So much to conquer, so little time to do it in!

So much to discover on the way.
