Yesterday afternoon was a gorgeous afternoon. It was sunny and in the 60s, which was a great break from the 30 degree cold front we’ve had.
I wanted to spend a little time outside before church, but where we live, my options are front yard, back yard, or walk in the road. Since it was around 5, I didn’t want to walk on the road so I didn’t have to dodge everyone coming home for the day.
So I decided to trek down to the pond with Pippin (Mikey is an old fogey and won’t walk).
It’s not far from our house down the hill to the pond, but I don’t go down there often. There’s a gate to open, old cow patties to dodge…but once I get down there, it’s so peaceful.
During the summer, we can feed catfish here. I hope the recent flooding hasn’t washed them all out of the pond.
Sort of like life. There are things to change, but also things to admire. What a gift we’ve been given to be able to see the beauty in the imperfect.
