This ole merry-go-round has not seen use in alot of years. Great old piece that would be wonderful to restore. This week has been an endless whirl of activities and demands. Sometimes it feels like an out of control merry-go-round, spinning in circles and taking me nowhere fast. Then I remembered that I don't have to stay on the merry-go-round. I can step off, even if it is moving fast. The property where this merry-go-round is located should close and go to a new buyer today. The sale itself has been a ride! Very frustrating with alot of ups and downs. I went up over my noon hour and sat on the merry-go-round, praying that today I get to step off and start in another direction.

Could this be it? Rock and timber. Rough inside. 5 acres of timber. Out in the "boonies" and on a "dead end" road. Now that is an interesting word phrase. Dead end....an end without an exit; a situation or course of action that leads to nothing further. hmmmm We aren't looking at this as a "dead end" but rather a new beginning. Possibly a new adventure even. Most people would look at this and see work. LaVern and I see possibilities. I need to be heading home. A local club group is coming by tonight to tour our house. They will all be so surprised as it is not what they imagine inside! I love it when that happens! Later....

Come away, Sappa Park whispers to me. It calls me to come to a quiet place, to still my soul, and to let the silence speak to me. I hush my busy thoughts and take a break from the business of life. It helps me gain a clearer insight on what is happening in my life.
LaVern and I are so looking forward to living an even more simple life. "Downsizing" yet again to just the basic needs. Imagine the time for silence, prayer and contemplation. I believe that when you spend time in sweet silence you disconnect from the flurry of daily life and your perspectives change. We should allow the silence to teach us the gentle rhythms of grace. Go out in nature and let the birds sing you a song.
