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!
