It was like most mornings are these days.
Up way too early,
tons on the to-do list,
another crew coming to work on the kitchen,
and today the search for pantry door hardware continues,
so after getting the crew on task I hit the road...
Two places to go and it would take a while to get there because these shops are out in the country.
It would take a good while at these antique/junk places, they are large and require deep searching to sift through piles in hopes of finding the hardware I'm looking for.
I was rushed but enjoying the scenery as I drove along
and kept thinking to myself how nice it would be to just slow down.
My heart was nudging me to pull over and capture some of these amazing sights with my camera.
It was the perfect time to do so,
the early morning light was soft, the colors vivid,
there were so many magnificent sights, including roosters nibbling on the roadside...
there were places to go,
things to get,
the usual rush...rush...rush, so I kept on driving!
About 45 minutes later I reached my first destination, it was closed.
Another 20 minutes to my second destination, it was closed.
I knew God was nudging my heart so my rush could turn to slow,
turning my attention away from the to-do list and towards His beauty all around me.
Since I didn't listen earlier, slowing down and arriving at the shops AFTER enjoying the early morning sights, He saw to it that the shops were closed.
these errands on my to-do list on a day when these shops would be closed?
No, it's a God thing.
He is so good
knew I needed a day to just s l o w d o w n and b e s t i l l ...
I should have heeded to the earlier nudge,
the sun was higher now and the colors not as soft for taking pictures
but it was still beautiful,
and I enjoyed every second...
Having spent much time in the country as a little girl, there were always kitties with bobbed tails
and yesterday I happened upon a kitty at the edge of the cotton field and guess what...
his tail was bobbed!
Ever wonder why so many country kitties have bobbed tails?
Slow down sweet friend and enjoy your day!
"Be still and know that I am God."
There were so many sights to capture so I hope you'll come back for Country Roads ~ 2!
