The Adirondack Chairs

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.”
