Killynether Wood

Killynether Wood
It was such a beautiful day even though there was a chill in the air it was perfect for walking. After church and lunch we decided to take Smudge to Killynether wood. We walk here in every season but our favourite time is blackberry picking time. Smudge loves the freedom of being off the lead that this area allows over the national Trust properties where she must be on the lead at all times.

            I enjoy the walk here as a bit more strenuous with lots of hills and valleys and rocks to climb over.

 In both our study of John and in church as we approach Easter we talk of what Christ has done for us. Do we really understand the freedom he has brought us from our sin and in this country the freedom we have in many things. Out in the countryside gives us such a sense of freedom and also a reminder of the wonderful creation that we have been studying in Genesis.
"The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind.......

and trees bearing fruit with seed in them after their kind and God saw that it was good." Genesis1:12

don't you expect to see Winnie the Pooh and friends!!

I think if more people took time out to walk and look around they would feel more relaxed which would heal the mind as well as what they would gain physically with the exercise. A lot of people in N.Ireland blame the weather but if you dress appropriately to the seasons it is not a problem.

"In the world you have tribulation but take courage I have overcome the world" John16:33
