My Canada is: Home

July 20, 2017 by Wanda Vincent

Majestic mountain peaks, endless prairie skies, brilliant northern lights, vibrant temperate forests, rugged wind swept coasts. The natural beauty of Canada is astounding to behold, but there is a deeper strength and beauty here.

I have had a chance to travel and live in other countries each beautiful in their own way. Although each time was an exciting adventure there was always that sense of “Ah, I am home!” as soon as I crossed the border into Canada.

Like arriving home from a hectic day at work. When you walk thru your front door, you feel the stress leave; you take your shoes off and recline in your favorite chair. You are home. You relax and have that sense of comfort, safety and security. A hiding place from the outside world and it’s problems.

This is Canada, a place of refuge and safety a nation that promotes freedom and peace in this tumultuous world.

A very small taste of heaven our eternal home.

This is Canada, my home
