Elora, Ontario is a beautiful town. If you haven’t been there, then you must go! Places like this soothe (or sooth) my soul. When I am down or exhausted or need to rejuvenate or be refreshed then all I need is a little place like this to be energized. To relax in nature. There are other things that sooth my soul. I thought I would start out with this one. I hope you enjoy the pictures. If you are in the area, I do encourage you to visit. If you aren’t, find a place like it and take time to enjoy and reflect while you are there, on wherever your heart and mind lead you.
I could have sat at this picnic table all afternoon and evening and listened to the sounds of the falls and enjoyed the smells of the fresh air and admired the beauty. These are views that sooth my soul and the times that I feel closest to God. He imagined. He created. He delights in. We admire. We admire. We give praise.

*Psst*… “sooth” means “true” or “real” (ie. “forsooth!” = “in truth”… “soothe” means “ease” or “comfort”. 😉
Mind you, both words are directly related, so it's not that far a stretch.
Love the photos!!! I love sitting outside and listening to the natural world. The sounds of the created world — birds, water, rustling leaves — are just so comforting compared to the stress-inducing hustle and bustle of everyday life.
*psst* thank you Faith for being my unofficial editor! I appreciate it. 🙂
