Freshen Up Friday

I grew up in Kentucky.  When I was in high school, we moved to a house out in the country on five acres.  I learned to love those country roads where our home was located.  When I moved away a couple years later to teach in a Christian school in South Carolina, I remember asking someone not long after I got there, to point me to a country road.  I just needed to get away to enjoy the quiet countryside.  There’s nothing like it!

A great way to refresh yourself this weekend would be to take a break from the busyness of the world and drive out on the country roads.  Take the long way that’s more scenic to Walmart.  Drive out to a fruit stand and purchase some fresh peaches or tomatoes.  Watch the cows and goats in the fields.  Stop the car and listen to the quiet.  I can hear John Denver singing now, “Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong…”  Find a country road and go home to rest and quiet!

Another road that will refresh you is the road to church!  I hope to see you there Sunday!

Be refreshed,
