But here are more reasons I LOVE right where I am.
|The view to the south|
|If you ever told me I'd live on 30 acres in the middle of nowhere with FOUR COWS.....I'd have told you you had lost your mind. Yet here is the view to the south-east corner of our property.|
|Doug actually found an itty bitty color and leash so Jacob could take his bunny, Stasher, for a walk.|
|Watch our Derek Jeter! Look at that form! (And the face)|
|A new trick he learned at Auntie Shawn's....going down the slide head first. Lovely.|
|The very first time he could swing all by himself, and I was actually outside to see it. Yay for me! Such a big boy.|
|The pond (which keeps expanding) and my 3 waddling Peking ducks. Love my ducks!|
You know what I was thinking this morning as I drove back from errands after dropping Jacob off? God made this world so amazing. So beautiful. So brilliant and glorious! He didn't have to do that. We never would have known the difference. He could have made all trees grey. The sky could have been grey (well, it is a lot of the time in Michigan anyway), the ground could have been black.
But today, I'm so enthralled with the beauty around me I can barely breathe. The brilliant blue sky against the changing leaves....red, orange, yellow, and every shade and hue in between. Glorious. Simply glorious!
And He did it just for us. So we could see His glory. So we could know and appreciate beauty. Love it.
