Home on the Rock

Bermuda is such a small wee little island.  We are blessed with a mild climate and a somewhat relaxed pace of life. It is the “island” effect. We have glorious vistas, magnificent beaches, colourful people and an ocean surrounding us that defies description.  So many shades of blue in its depths are a feast for this girl’s eye,  I who love blue. It seems to me that music dances throughout the life here and that too is varied and colourful. Bermuda is certainly imperfect and we have our social ills as does anyplace. Oftentimes, I consider what it might be like to live elsewhere. Indeed I have a special place in my heart for other places but when it comes right down to it, this is my home. While we face our own challenges, it is here where I want to be. We have too much violence as of late and my heart aches for this wonderful place. But here I shall stay. And for Bermuda, I will continue to pray.

Having been born and brought up on the north-east coast of Canada, I have a deep love for that country…..but again, this island is home.  After living here for more than 41 years, these little highways and byways bring me peace, and happiness. When, on occasion,  I find myself travelling to other delightful places, my heart always yearns for home.

I have missed blogging on this recent holiday with too many computer issues to be able to post and publish.

But I am back again……back home on the rock!

  1. Bermuda is indeed a wonderful place to live and bring up children. But all Bermudians love to travel and explore God’s creation world wide. No matter where you live, there is no place like home where your family and friends are always there for you.
