Yesterday's Blessing

It's nice to have times to just get away for a while and enjoy the beauty of God's creation. We spend so much of our time in an office or a fixed environment, and the change of scenery is a real "pick-me-up" for me.

Yesterday was one of those days. A buddy of mine and I went to Frankston, Texas (close to Tyler) to a golf course that is beautiful. It's called Pine Dunes, and it has been there for a long time as a 9 hole course. But a few years ago, a wealthy woman from Washington state bought it, added 9 more holes and has transformed it into one of the finest courses in the state. It is a daily-fee course, and well-worth the trip.

But just being away from the traffic and noise in such a quiet setting -- listening to the wind blow through the pine trees -- it was really nice. God is so good, and He has surrounded us with such incredible evidences of His greatness.

On a different subject: How far are the Mavs going to go this year?

I know how you feel. I'm counting the days until I travel to central Nebraska to enjoy the peace and serenity of the rural countryside - interrupted only occasionally by the sound associated with some varmint in the far off distance biting the dust.
