A typical day in the country…

Our family lives in the country… one of the things we thank God for every day.  Jason was raised in the country and I was raised in town.  I was hesitant about moving from our home (right smack dab in the middle of town) because I was afraid I would miss the convenience of being able to drive 2 blocks to the grocery store.

Within about 2 months of moving to Autry Hill (some people name cars, we name our land), I was in love.  I was in love with being secluded from the outside world, and as my relationship with God grew, so did my love for the “country”.  Seeing His creations every single second of the day became such a blessing to me.  I was able to see how  great His vision was for us.  He has given us so much to see and explore- and our family spends a lot of time just enjoying the breeze on our face, the gnats in our ears, the sunrises and sunsets that paint our sky, and even the young deer with their spots still on their coats.

Here are a couple of pictures that we’ve snapped over the last several months to show how great our God is.

Hummingbirds visiting the feeders. This year we counted 8 hummers fighting each other for a drink from our feeders.

We farm and this is one of our cotton fields! There is no other job in the world where you are more dependent on God than when farming.

Love the way these clouds look!

You can’t really tell but this is a DEEP hole in the ground. We found a piece of molten metal near this hole and we assume it’s where a meteor hit. There is another hole about this same size about 500 yards away.

During one of our visits to the cotton field, a storm was headed our way. This has a filter on it but the original was just as beautiful

I hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I love taking them!
