I Took the Long Way
Yesterday was another "San Diego Day" and what better way to celebrate a glorious day like this than to take a ride in the country. You remember those Sunday drives don't you....almost a lost art in these days of hurry hurry. I shared thoughts on keeping the Sabbath a day of rest on my blog post at Focusing on Life and yesterday I practiced what I "preached".
Here in the midwest, the crops have been planted and already you can see the corn breaking thru the earth towards their climb to heights of 12 feet or more. Driving through the countryside and seeing those perfectly planted rows of corn gives me a feeling of peace and order in my life. Some find peace in gazing upon the water, or a sunset, or the mountains, but peace comes to me in the fields of the midwest.
And finding a few fence posts is always a bonus.
Especially if there is a hawk involved.....
Or a horse....
So my advice to you is....next time you are heading out, take the long way. You might be surprised at what you find along the way.
Linking to Tricia's Barn Charm.
"It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop." ~ Confucius
Until next time.....
