Tour de Parks: Patches of Light

Yippee!!! After a 3-week rain delay, the Tour de Parks happened again this past Sunday. The park I walked  is not one of the two places I wanted to walk, but it was where I needed to walk.

The park where this prestigious event was held was Plum Creek North in Brunswick, OH and is also part of the Medina County Parks System. Even though part of the path was paved, there were plenty of hills and flat surfaces. I need to find time to walk this one more often because walking it will whip me into shape in no time.

So without further adieu…let’s start our journey through Plum Creek North.



We will be walking the yellow trail.

Here is the entrance.



Our first glimpse of the North Pond


The North Pond in all her glory.


Before we head on down the path, anyone hungry?



Uh Oh! Look what’s ahead…



Well at least they apologized for the mess! Life does not apologize for the mess it leaves.

So put it in reverse, back up and let’s head up the stairs.


Here we are, at the top of the stairs and going to turn left.


This is where I got the idea for today’s post. It is dark along this path and it will get darker, but along the way you will see patches of light. Just like in life, when you walk the paths covered in darkness there are patches of light along the way. It is God working through the people in your life. They may only be there for a minute, day or the entire season of darkness but they are there, shining just as bright as the stars at night.

Here is where I leave you. As you walk this path to the South Pond and back, watch for the patches of light. And watch for the patches of light in your own life today and the rest of this week. I bet you will be surprised at how many you find.

The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1
