This morning I was listening to a song titled “Dirt Road Prayer”
as I was driving home on back roads after dropping my daughter off at preschool
(she goes to an old country school)
and I had to stop for a cattle drive.
I love reasons to slow down!!!!!
We are always in such a hurry to get from place to place and to be on time!
It was nice this morning to be forced to slow down/stop and enjoy the moment.
As I sat there I thought about….
I love the fact that my daughter gets to experience the country school atmosphere.
(It actually part of our public school system but I love that they are utilizing the building and land)
Country schools are a thing of the past (in MOST areas).
They offered such a personalized intimate learning experience that I feel she is getting.
And she has amazing teachers!!!
I also love cattle drives.
As a kid I loved to move cattle on weekends.
I would look forward to it all week.
I loved to saddle up my horse and ride slowly for miles and miles with the cows.
It was so peaceful and enjoyable.
You had such a sense of accomplishment when done.
And then the day was always finished off with good food and great company.
I love dirt roads!!!
When I was in college I would go for a drive and hit dirt roads
just to relax and gather my thoughts.
There is just something about them.
I am so lucky that my home is now down a dusty dirt road.
And the song I was listening to was PERFECT!
Sometimes god really gives us the perfect moments in life to reflect and appreciate
the many gifts he has given us.
As I sat there on the dirt road,
watching the cattle walk by slowly I prayed and thanked him for this amazing life!
I want to share the song with you!
Have an amazing week!!!!
