Over the weekend, we went to our friends' house in the country. WAY up in the mountainous woods, where neither cell phone service nor GPS service works. Here are some pictures of that trip. There are many amazing sights, made by both God and man. In some of these areas, time has seemed to stand still. And in one moment, time almost stopped for us, and these country roads almost DID take us home. Dear friends, do you remember my post of last week with all the deer on the road? Yesterday we hit one. He came jumping out of the woods onto the road on my side of the car, in front of the passenger bumper. He looked right at me with large, frightened eyes (the deer, not my husband, who remained cool and stayed in control). Then he went down, KERBUMP, KERBANG. We were going slowly, trying to read the mailbox house numbers, or it would have been much worse. The deer got up and limped/hopped back into the woods. We continued on, stunned. So this now is our second chance, our second life. I will use it well. But then again, every day is another chance, we just don't get reminded by going as close to the brink and back.
"Now listen, you who say,"Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is yur life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:13
