Simple Joys Saturday

Country Roads, yep this is my road out front of our house, they had just built it up some after we had a heavy rain storm and it washed mostly away, there have been times when we could not get out of our drive way the water was rushing in so fast, but road department has worked very hard in the past ten years to take care of that problem, it is pretty smooth most of the time now, except right after a hard rain, and then it tends to be pretty bumpy. But all in all I love my dirt road, there is hardly any traffic on it, and the quiet surroundings is just wonderful in this day and time, when every thing is moving so fast all around us. I think I would like for them to pave the road, then I think all that would bring too, and I am thinking the way it is should stay...

There is nothing like a laid back Saturday, just enjoying the sounds, the smells and the sights of the day, nothing compares to the creek flowing, and the water slapping the sticks and rocks as it moves quickly down stream. Even Goldie our big dog loves standing and watching the water, and it comes between her and her pond some times, lol she is a Golden Retriever and love the water, not in the creek so much, but in the pond just up the hill and the when the creek is moving fast she stays on this side of it.

So for now I will stay in the woods, love the serenity it brings, I have much time to be alone with God, and all his creation, what a wonderful thing to be able to look around me and know my God has created all this just for me to enjoy. What a wonderful God we serve, and to know we that are saved will be with him forever through out eternity.
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God".
John 1:2 "The same was in the beginning with God".

So for this Simple Joys Saturday, good day, and God bless you real good, have a wonderful worship service tomorrow in your church. Lots of hugs for your day and,

We received a fair amount of rain yesterday and during the overnight. When I looked outside, it looked like everything had turned more green. I see in your first picture that everything looks green too.

sometimes I feel guilty when we have a laid back usually needs to be a work day around our house and yard...but the older we get, it seems like we need TWO days of rest! LOL Anyway, thanks for giving me "permission" to just enjoy this beautiful day...I need to get a few things done, but I will pace myself! Have a great weekend!

Happy Saturday Barbara, Loved this post-the slow easy feeling I get from visiting with you. We've had some storms pass through this week but nothing major and hopefully it helped the grass green up a bit.
Your opening sentence reminded me of an old song "Country Roads"-you may remember it.
I'd love to sit and have some ice tea with you, oh well.
Have a blessed day.

Yes I do remember the old song, and it is a laid back time, I love it out here and it just cannot compare to any thing I have seen, at my age I need quiet, and serenity, I get it here for sure, when I am in need of excitement, I just go to town, lol just being in the traffic is enough excitement to keep me going for a while.
We have 10 acres of the most beautiful trees I have ever seen, most are the old Georgia oaks, big and some must be at least a 100 years old, one of our property markers is a triple Oak, huge tree love it indeed, Hope you do feel at home here, and I have the iced tea waiting we'll sit a spell on the back porch.

It rains mainly during the evening (more like a heat storm)...but I love it when it rains and love watching and listening to the water...whether its the lake or the ocean....i find such peace when I take the time to observe nature in itself. I enjoy reading your post and visiting for the first time. Have a bless weekend!!
