My writing place …

 

“And god said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear. And it was so…” And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:9

God created the world we live in first and then decided to place man and woman on it to enjoy the fruit of his labor. We are given the task of being caretakers of this beautiful world. When all else seems down and ugly in the world, the beauty of nature shows through. We are blessed to be part of it wherever we are and in whatever we do.

To awaken with a view of fields and woods on the north and a creek on the south has fulfilled a long-time dream of spending time by water and with farmland all around, which takes me back to my youth growing up in Iowa. With the peaceful setting, I’m hoping to spend a lot of time writing this summer—a book is calling me to be written.

It takes a quiet setting for me to tap into the portion of my soul that is creative. I also plan time to try kayaking on Dunning Creek behind our cabin, which eventually flows into Chesapeake Bay, so I must be careful how far I venture from home. From where I have my desk, I can watch the crops grow, birds perching, squirrels flitting around, and rabbits roaming.

Lord, thank you for the diversity of seasons and the landscape you have provided for us to enjoy. Amen.
