I must need that getaway I wrote about in my previous post more than I realized because yesterday God put one right in front of me and it was my great delight.
Walking along the paved trail near our neighborhood, I peered into the woods, winter bare, sun streaming down casting evening shadows - when something caught my eye.
Two Adirondack chairs, one red and the other blue, were in the middle of the woods. A kindred spirit must have done such a thing placing them there. Another heart that beats for quiet moments of serenity when all the world must be tuned out for a little while.
As I sank comfortably into the blue chair, I thought about how this scene will look in the spring, and I cannot wait. Every breath I take in winter awaits the coming spring.
But for the barrenness of winter, I would not have spotted them from the trail.
These were my happiest moments in recent days as I received this treasured gift from the Lord.
Isaiah 30:15 “In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
