The peacefulness

I’ve never experienced true peace like when I’m in the country surrounded by God’s creations. I went to Missouri this past fall to visit my friend and her 14 brothers and sisters. They live on 80 acres of land with a creek and animals. I’ve walked their land and just felt a peace. I feel the same when I go to Lancaster County. All that green in the summer, the quiet nights where there aren’t any fire trucks or police cruisers racing the streets, it’s crazy wonderful. I was born and raised in NYC. The closest thing we had to a farm was the petting zoo. So you’d think I’d prefer the city. Nope. I don’t appreciate the bugs in the country but that’s what bug spray is for. Lol.

I would love to own a little cottage on some land and commune with God. Not that you can’t commune in the city, but the awesomeness of nature is this: to realize that the God that made the mountains and streams, the clouds and stars and everything else, made me.

But whether or not you are in the country, you should take time out each day and read your Bible, pray and talk to God. I wish everyone the best.

Am I lucky or what? Actually more like what.

I was putting on deodorant the other day when the head of the deodorant flung into the air and landed…in the toilet. 😩

And now I have a chest cold. My asthma has been acting up and my throat is itchy. And the beautiful weather we’ve been having is going to end soon. 😭

Why am I so negative? Actually I’m not. God is still on the throne and in control. Jesus still saved my soul.

Sometimes you have these not so positive times and you just have to deal. Maybe get some hot chocolate or go to bed early. But always remember that Jesus loves you.
