Country Roads

I love going for walks in small towns and down country roads.  I also love when I find a surprise or something old that speaks to me.  Such was the case this past week.  I am currently on a brief visit to the USA.  I have visited this small town many times, but was surprised to find this small cemetery.  It proved to be a family cemetery on family property.  It was tucked away behind a warehouse for the family business.  LakeCity2.JPGIf you look behind the bushes, you will see an old building.  I love this old building and often think I would love to do something with it.  I always feel nostalgic when driving by and it was nice to go by it walking at a slower pace and take it all in.  LakeCity1.JPGThese walks help me to feel grounded and think about my simple roots.  It’s overwhelming to think about the fact that the Lord chose this simple country-loving girl to serve Him in an Asian country on the other side of the world.  I see His grace in my life in amazing ways and I am grateful.

“For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:”

~I Corinthians 1:26-28
