It was quite refreshing to enjoy the cool, crisp mountain air for a few days. To go from a daytime temperature of 95 degrees to a high of 79 degrees was fantastic! I’m sitting in Helen Georgia right now, but in about 10 hours, I’ll be back home in the unbreathable, high humidity, sweat dripping, sunny Florida. It makes me want to become a “sunbird” where I travel north to escape the heat, just like our friendly “snowbirds” from the north do in the winter. Just one problem, I think I might go stir crazy! I mean, how many mountains can you gaze upon before they begin to look the same? The winding rivers and rocky shoals are soothing, but will put you in a trance if you fix your eyes on them too long. Where are the beaches? Yes, the mountains are a great place to visit, but I’m satisfied with the location that God has placed me in. Maybe vacations and travel are a way to make you appreciate what you have, at least that’s my take on it today. Learn to appreciate God’s provision. He has you where you are for a reason and will let you know if it’s time to move on.
“And in that day the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the streambeds of Judah shall flow with water; and a fountain shall come forth from the house of the LORD and water the Valley of Shittim. Joel 3:18
