A circular 3 mile walk near Mapledurham

Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Hebrews 13:20,21
Wonderful sunshine and a wide path…

A path is a prior interpretation of the best way to traverse a landscape.

Rebecca Solnit
…past this mistletoe growing very well high up in a tree.
Mistletoe is ” hemiparasitic” , which means it takes some of its food from another plant in this case the tree. It has pairs of symetrical evergreen leaves on forked branches.
I don’t know how this tree got its shape and it is also difficult to know what type of tree it is.

That which happens to the soil when it ceases to be cultivated by the social man happens to man himself when he foolishly forsakes society for solitude; the brambles grow up in the desert heart.

Antoine Rivarol
Then a slope helped by some natural looking log steps to a spread…

Remember when life’s path is steep to keep your mind even.

of wild lemon-yellow Primroses.

” Primroses, the Spring may love them; Summer knows but little of them.”

William Wordsworth

In the Victorian language of flowers , primroses’ association with youth and young love means ” I can’t live without you.” Across cultures, primroses signify spring, protection, safety and love.

From The Mission Study Bible.
