The peace and quiet of country living......I wouldn't trade it for anything. There is no hustle and bustle of the city noises to distract us. Everywhere we turn we see God's handiwork.
The morning sunrise coming through the trees....it is like the Lord is saying "Good Morning" and at night as the sun sets and as the moon & stars rise into the nigh sky in all their beauty it is so breath taking.....The Northern Lights as they dance across the night sky in robes of pinks & greens....a feast for one's eyes in the grandeur and beauty, beyond words....
"This is"God's Country"
Every morning I awake to the sounds of birds singing, the rustling of leaves on a gentle breeze, the honking of a gaggle of geese on their north bound journey. Yes I know city dwellers hear these as well but there is no distraction from traffic and such noises common to the city.
Some nights we get a visit from a coyote or two....you can hear the rest of the pack off in the distance.....their mission is to incise our dog - Timon out so they can attack.....only thing they don't realize is that he is smarter than thet are than to fall for the call of the lone coyote.
We get bears that wonder in sometimes during the day and other times at night......they seem to be moving farther and farther to the south.....a couple of weeks ago 15 adult bears were spotted in the area......Each year for the longest time a mother bear and her cubs come waltzing down the drive so much to say "Hi!....I'm back and these are my babies" and my uncle chases them back down the road so much to tell her, "Hi.....now go back to the forest where you came from and we'll all be happy, we don't want any trouble now!" As cute and cuddly as these creature look, they are dangerous and we don't need them hanging around.
I truly love living in the country.....I feel so close to God here and I get to see his creations as they change with the seasons....and enjoy the beauty and splendor that comes with living here.......
Yes.......... this truly is
