On Saturday, my family and I went to the Cobourg Sandcastle Festival. It was a busy day. Everyone was worried about getting there early and the traffic. My mom and I decided to take the winding route. As we drove we chatted about how great it was to not worry so much about the destination. Living near big cities we are always talking about how long it takes to get to places. Our inclination is to rush the journey. We found a way to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. I wanted to give thanks for those things that we hear/see often but overlook even more.
Thank you God for:
-rolling hills that keep you guessing
-Ella-Shilloh's long nap in the car
-farmers that keep us fed
-our 10 year old van that gets us from adventure to adventure
-fresh eggs and blueberry picking signs
-old barns that dot our journey
-mustard yellow fields with mystery crops
-animals that bring smiles to the children
-hill top views
-chip trucks with "newfie fries" (fries with stuffing and gravy- who knew?)
Thank you Lord for the everyday, the winding road, and a journey that keeps us guessing!
