This look like a Tiger Lily, but the hot weather has got to it.
All the way there was a paved winding path. And the surrounding trees were thick.
About half-way through the journey I came to a free little library. These are becoming more and more popular in this area of Minnesota. However, I passed up any free books. They seem to be all for the degenerate–romance novels, etc.
I came across a tree full of colorful helicopter seeds. The best part of my sightseeing journey.
These little flowers are only about one-half inch in diameter. They are so beautiful up close.
A very delicate flower, a pink wild rose.
The yellow Goatsbeard.
A Western Wild Rose.
A Viceroy butterfly. It looks a lot like a Monarch but it is darker in color.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you…
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:1-2, 27)
These strange-looking trees, an almost flooded creek, and the eerie looking sky makes for an uncommon beautiful scene.
The narrow most treacherous road may be the best one. As Jesus said in Matthew 7:13-14,
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
A wide dirt trail. Easy to walk on. Many think it is easy to follow Jesus in His way. But as Jesus was walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”
Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head” (Lu. 9:57).
A grassy trail.
The grassy trail is a quiet trail and best for conversation. Two men one day reflected on their conversation with a stranger:
32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”
