Today we had the most fantastic time of worship and fellowship. After service, we had a delicious meal. Well, my husband did; mine wasn’t so great—the sad and ugly truth.

Our city borders Kentucky, and we decided to be adventurous. A change of scenery it’s always good for the soul. Once we finished shopping, my husband had the idea of taking a different road to our lake house. We stay in this little bungalow when we don’t have clients. That will be at the end of this week.

Farmland with corn, beans, and tobacco adorned the fields as we traveled down the long narrow road. In our way, the Amish neighbors probably coming back from service waved at us with joy, especially the little kids on the back of the wagon.

Majestic new and old barns presented a photo op. I love saving them for future paintings. Domestic animals and a few horses enjoyed the perfect 82-degree weather. Along the road, a creek I didn’t have time to capture. Maybe another day. In the meantime, look at these small parts of heaven somewhere in Kentucky, the Home of the 101st Airborne Division in Fort Campbell.

We live in a southern state. It has been a while since we have one. It is not the most comforting situation when you have to travel. Due to the transparency of the ice, it’s hard to identify dangerous areas.

We went for a nice walk today in a 26° more or less. The wind was not blowing, which made it tolerable. It felt good to be out of the house. We will be driving back to the city tomorrow. God help us!
