I know I just posted a photo of a horse I met on a little country road…
but I couldn’t wait to share these pictures with you…
My husband and I were on our way to a church picnic…
I had no idea that we would be way out in the country…
But as we drove in, I couldn’t believe my eyes!
There were lots of cows, chickens, and these two beautiful horses!
I immediately took out my camera and began taking pictures.
The cows didn’t like me too much, they actually scared me.
But the horses were very nice and weren’t camera-shy.
If you’re from the city, a day in the country can be literally “a breath of fresh air”.
For me, it’s usually like taking a trip back in time.
A slower pace.
Time to reflect.
No signal… so no cell phone calls.
I can feel the stress begin to fade away.
If you’re with a loved one, or with a friend, it can be so special.
Or even if you’re by yourself, it can be a time for refreshing.
The breeze, the sounds of the outdoors in the background.
There’s something about getting away from the noise and distractions we are used to,
and going outdoors where we can slow down, be quiet, enjoy the ancient art of talking
to one another (instead of texting, or using the social media).
If you get the chance anytime soon,
to go out to the country…
go for it.
Enjoy the quiet, and the scenery.
