Blessings In The Boonies

By Your Grace, Lord, I have lived in many places over the years.  Very different kinds of places.  Big cities.  Small towns.  And now?  The Boonies.   🙂   Where, today, Your Blessings have filled me to overflowing!

Waking up to the sound of steady rainfall.  Unhindered by man-made sounds of any kind.

Vegetable seedlings poking up out of packed red clay.  Undaunted by torrential rains lasting days-on-end.

Skippy romping joyfully across open hunting grounds.  Unfazed by prey forever staying one step ahead.

Satellite Internet holding fast.  Uninterrupted by relentless storms.

Love birds cuddling in the Spring chill.  United in breathless beauty and forever friendship.

Billions of night stars shining through pitch black darkness.  Unreachable, but close enough to touch.

Ah, Lord… How could I travel so far?

From “Busyness on Steroids” to such Blessings in the Boonies???

“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you to desires of your heart.”  (Psalm 37:3-4)

Joyfully unplugged,

Abba’s Girl
