Have you ever listened to these quiet country evenings? Outside tonight, I went for a walk. The robins and sparrows and others that I can't pick out were singing in the trees. Then I heard the drumming of the ruffled grouse. Sounds like a John Deere starting. Next the crows are busy yelling in the tree tops. Back in the yard I hear the wild geese and ducks back at the beaver pond. Then a shipoke out in the slew starts sounding like a pump. Now the sun is going down and the peepers are so loud that we sometimes shut the window so we can sleep. It's wonderful
And...we woke up to snow on the ground this morning. Next weekend is fishing opener and it's not unusual to wake up with snow on the tent. For some reason it likes to make one last try before it gives it up for the summer.
Rest well. Peace in Christ.
