What a blessing it has been. We've found people to be warm and friendly. Everything you need to have done is not accomplished without a long conversation, and no one is afraid to mention God's hand in their life. Drive-thru's say have a "blessed" day. It's actually a joy to go shopping.
I've found a new peace in this relaxed country atmosphere...I'm not nearly as driven and enjoying the time I have to write. How well God knows us and what we need. Right now as I put these words down, I hear the birds singing outside and I'm reminded of how the simple things in life brings us the most pleasure.
