COUNTRY LIVING




Here are two things that you cannot find in the city. We wake up every morning to a breath taking sunrise. Right now the sound of geese go along with it. The cotton is quite amazing as well. It kind of looks like snow. We don't get much snow around here. There is a different feeling out here that has to be experienced to appreciate. I love not hearing police sirens or lound booms from Ft. Bragg. Don't get me wrong, I do miss Fayetteville but living in the country is hard to beat. Being so close to nature is kind of like being close to our Father in Heaven. No distractions so one can ponder and think. Ya'll come and visit sometime.

I never thought about it like that...the country shuts out the loud distractions and helps you feel closer to Heavenly Father. Wow, you've talked me into it. I want to move to the country. :)

Sounds lovely....I grew up in a place like that and loved it! I'm glad you get to be there.

Those are beautiful photos! I grew up in Montana, so the country is home to me. :)

I love nature! Those pictures are beautiful. They make me want to go sit and ponder and get ready for Conference! :)

Micah cannot ever see this post. If he does, he'll want to sell our house and move next door to you guys. He loves the slow, quiet, country life. Someone once theorized that the shepherds in the field are the ones to have documented the announced birth of the Savior since they were away from the distractions in the city what with the census going on and all. Yet another reason to get away from city living...communing with Heaven.

I love the pictures here and on the next post. I can't believe how big your girls have grown and how much one of them reminds me of Janice. What a great place and such a cute family!
