Enjoying Simple Pleasures

I’ve been rather unwell for about 3-4 weeks (now recovered) and have been stuck in bed for most of that time. People who know me, know that that does not go down well with me. I like to be out and about, exploring and enjoying Singapore.

It was a real joy today to be able to meet up with friends for a Bible Study (Discerning the Voice Of God). I usually hop in a cab home or if I have grocery shopping to do I walk to the mall first and then get a cab home.

Neither of those appealed to me. I was in no rush to get back to the confines of the house having been stuck inside for weeks. I had the time, so I decided to walk the 3km through the Botanic Gardens to the nearest MRT station.

It was a beautiful day; a bit overcast with a breeze. This made the 38C temp bearable. I walked a different path around the edge of the gardens and soaked up the atmosphere, warmth, sounds and sensations of sight and smell of the garden. It was delightful.

Sometimes we just have to take a step back from the busyness of our lives and enjoy the simple beauty of God’s wonderful creation.

I took a few snaps with my iPhone- enjoy.
